of the three possible combinations of boundary conditions (ﬁxed—ﬁxed, ﬁxed—free, free—free). (b) Comparing frequencies (4 points) Among the three possible combinations of boundary conditions from part ( a ), which
allows the lowest possible standingwave frequency for the same length L, tension ’1'

mode of an aluminum rod oflength L z 1 In. You should have found a frequency near f = 2x103 Hz.
(For the purpose of this problem? take this to be the exact value.) Because you held the rod at
its center while leaving both ends free, this gives the frequency corresponding to the freeefree
combination of boundary conditions from Problem 3. Finally, further measurements on the actual
rod you used Show it to have a cross sectional area A : 7rr2 : 500 mm2 : 500 X 10‘6 m2 and a
total mass M = 1.35 kg. (a) Speed of sound in aluminum (8 points) Use the above information to compute the speed of sound in the rod. Give a numerical

the data in part (a) because of the fake value given there for f!) Using the actual speed of
sound c = 5100 m/s and the information given above, compute the bulk modulus B of
aluminum. Give a numerical result in units of N/m2. a

back with a restoring force proportional to :13, F 2 km. Use the deﬁnition AV APz—B

rod is compressed. The inﬂuence of this effect is small in aluminum.  4,. AV 2;, Ear.
