Question

Waves are traveling on a very long string. A 1.54 m long piece of this string has a mass of 0.00311kg. The speed of the waves is 8.26 m/s; it takes 1.76s for 25 waves to pass by an observer. Calculate: a) the frequency of the waves, b) the wavelength of the waves, c) the tension on the string, d) the wavelength of the waves on the string if the source is the same but the tension on the string is doubled.
