wire and the frequencies at which resonance occurs. Also, we were to study the relationship between the frequency of the vibration and the tension and linear mass density of a vibrating wire. After a total of five trials where a certain diameter wire was used, having changed the tension on the wire, the wire frequency and velocity were calculated. This process was repeated a total of three times for three different wire diameters. At the end of the experiment, after the graphing the collected values of velocity and tension, the mass density of the wires were found out. As the results showed, the thicker the wire, the more accurate the recorded mass density was to the actual given value. Sample Calculations
