Question

A violin string is tuned to a certain frequency (first harmonic or the fundamental frequency).
(a) If a violinist wants a higher frequency, should the string be (1) lengthened, (2) kept the same length, or (3) shortened? Why?
(b) If the string is tuned to 520 Hz and the violinist puts a finger down on the string one-eighth of the string length from the neck end, what is the frequency of the string when the instrument is played this way?
