Unformatted text preview: number of nodes. We based this on the fact that as the mass-density increased, the waves would interfere with their reflections in more places then the lighter strings. We determined from our data that the number of nodes was directly proportional to the square root (sqrt) of the mass-density. From the data retrieved from the class we concluded that the general model for this experiment was: Nodes= 1.96*Frequency (Hz)*Length (m)*sqrt (unit density (kg/m)/Tension (N)) This compared very well to what was expected from the previously developed theory. The only difference was in the constant that we obtained (1.96) was a little lower then what the theory described....
