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.
