Transverse waves with a speed of 50.0 m/s are to be produced on a stretched string. A 5.00m length of string with a total of 60 grams is used.

a) what is the required tension in the string?

b) calculate the wave speed in the string if the tension is 8.00n.

  1. velocity= sqrt (tension/(mass/length))

    Tension=velocity^2 *mass/length
