A string is under a tension of 700.0 N. A 1.5 m length of the string has a mass of 4.5 grams. What is the speed of a transverse wave of wavelength 0.50 m in this string? What is the frequency of the wave?

  • Physics -

    velocity= sqrt (tension/linearmassdensity)

    One the last part, it am not certain that .50 equals one-half wavelength, it does not say that.
