# Question

You are setting up two standing string waves. You have a length of uniform piano wire that is 3.0 m long and has a mass of 0.150 kg. You cut this into two lengths, one of 1.0 m and the other of 2.0 m, and place each length under tension. What should be the ratio of tensions (expressed as short to long) so that their fundamental frequencies are the same?

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? ...A 0.500-kg mass is attached to a vertical spring and the system is allowed to come to equilibrium. The mass is then given an initial downward speed of 1.50 m/s.
