Conclusions: 1) Is the theoretical equation for the frequency of the wave on the string a good one? (Hint: Discuss the graphs) a. In the ideal situation, the graphs would go through the origin. In my case they did not. For the graph of f vs. 1/L the y-intercept (10.929±5.4211) was close to the origin but did not reach within the given error. For the graph of f vs. sqrt(tension) the y-intercept (-23.781±12.342) was further away from the origin than the other graph. Because of these two things I have to say that the theoretical equation for the frequency of the wave on the string is not a good one in my experiment. 2) Compare your measured frequencies to your calculated frequencies. Do they agree? a. My measured frequencies for both trials agreed with the theoretical frequencies within my experimental error. But on the other hand my theoretical frequencies did not agree at all points with my experimental
