In a common laboratory experiment on standing waves, the waves are produced in a stretched string by an electrical vibrator that oscillates at 60 Hz (Fig. 13.28). The string runs over a pulley, and a hanger is suspended from the end. The tension in the string is varied by adding weights to the hanger. If the active length of the string (the part that vibrates) is 1.5 m and this length of the string has a mass of 0.10 g, what masses must be suspended to produce the first four harmonics in that length?
