Standing Waves in Strings and Air Columns February 6 th , 2007 Pre-Questions : 1. f  x     λ = v      1/s x m = m/s 2. μ(kg/m) = M of string / L of string = 0.001 kg/5m  f 2    x   λ 2  = F T  / μ (120Hz) 2   x  (1) 2   =  F T  / 0.001 kg/5m F T  = 2.88 N F = m x g 2.88N = m x 9.81m/s 2   m = 0.29 kg Purpose:  To test Newton’s Laws applied to strings and air columns. Method:  The procedure was followed (15.1 – 15.4), and part b was only observed. Diagram:
