Consider a chunk of string of length A and mass per unit length a. The string is under tension

position a: and time t. As opposed to the derivation 1n lecturywhere air resistance is neglected we

now a. modiﬁcation of the experiment in which the right hand end of the string is attached to a
small massless ring which slides up and down a horizontal (in and out of the page) post without
friction. The post is attached through additional strings to a pulley on the other side of which
spring scales (like the ones in lab) provide constant tension (see Figure 5). As in lecture, L is the length of the string between the rod and the shaker, f is the frequency
of the shaker, T is the string tension and ,u is the mass per unit length of the string. Assume ,u is
constant throughout the problem. The shaker'vibrates the string in and out of the page. Assume
that the left hand end is ﬁxed at the shaker While the horizontal motion (alongthe y—direction) of
the right hand end has no constraint, i.e., the right hand end is free. (a) The Fundamental Mode (7 points) Sketch the shape of the standing wave corresponding to the lowest (fundamental) mode.

Sound Tube [14 points] A tube of length L is ﬁlled with air of bulk modulus B and mass density p0 at atmospheric pressure.
One end of the tube (at = L) is closed while the other end (a: = 0) is attached to a massless piston
of area A that can slide freely (without friction) along the tube. (We consider low amplitude waves
so that you can take L m const.) The piston is attached to an ideal spring of spring constant k
that exerts a horizontal force on the piston; the spring is relaxed when the piston is at x = 0. (See
Figure 6.) We denote the sound displacement inside the tube as S(x, t) and the pressure inside the
tube as P(:c, t). (a) Air Pressure and Displacement of the Piston (7 points) Draw a free body diagram for‘the piston, indicatingthe directions and the magnitudes
