The wave speed on a string is 148.9 m/s when the tension is 73.4 N. What tension will give a speed 184.9 m/s?

  • physics -

    Wave speed is proportional to the square root of tension. You want to increase the wave speed by a factor
    184.9/148.9 = 1.242
    Tension must increase by the square of that factor.
