Find the length of string and speed of wave in string if frequency of given wave is 850 hz and the wavelength is 0.26m? The string is in a tube that is closed at both ends.

I found the speed using v=freqeuncy*wavelength.
How do i find the length of the srring?

  1. If resonating, wouldnt the string length be a multiple of half wavelengths?
