"You will measure the tension T, the mass m, and the length L of your spring.
In terms of these variables, what is the expected frequency of the fundamental standing wave?"
I found the fundamental frequency to be:
f = 1/2L * sqrt(T/m/L)?

If you reconstruct the equation, you will get 1/2*(T/mL)^1/2
