Unformatted text preview: (c) (8x-16t) corresponds to wave 1 2. A wave (wavelength = 0.20 m) is traveling along a 100 m long wire whose total mass is 10kg. If the wire is under a tension of 1000 N, what is the frequency of this wave? Answer The frequency of the wave is f = v/ λ . The velocity is: s m v / 100 100 / 10 1000 = = , so frequency f = 100/0.2 = 500Hz...
