What are the first three harmonics of a note produced on a 31.0 cm long violin string if waves on this string have a speed of 277.0 m/s?

  • physics -

    frequency = (wave speed)/wavelength

    The first harmonic has a wavelength of 2L = 62 cm.

    The second harmonic has a wavelength of L = 31 cm.

    The third harmonic has a wavelength of
    (2/3)*L cm = 20.67 cm
