Unformatted text preview: B. The wavelength is unchanged but the wave speed doubles. C. Both wavelength and wave speed are unchanged. C Correct As you have discovered, when waves travel along a string, the wave speed remains unchanged, unless the properties of the string are changed. The wavelength can be varied only by changing the frequency, or alternatively the period, of the oscillator that creates the waves....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
