(a) Compute the derivative of the speed of a wave

(a) Compute the derivative of the speed of a wave on a string with respect to the tension dv/dF, and show that the differentials dv and dF obey dv/v = ½ dF/F.
(b) A wave moves with a speed of 300 m/s on a wire that is under a tension of 500 N. Using dF to approximate a change in tension, determine how much the tension must be changed to increase the speed to 312 m/s.
