(250N)(10.0m) 158m/s. 0.100kg == = L v m τ Here is the tension in the wire and L / m is the linear mass density of the wire. The coordinate of the meeting point is 3 10.0m (158m/s)(30.0 10 s) 7.37m. 2 x This is the distance from the left end of the wire. The distance from the right end is L x = (10.0 m – 7.37 m ) = 2.63 m. 23. The pulses have the same speed v . Suppose one pulse starts from the left end of the wire at time t = 0. Its coordinate at time t is x 1 = vt . The other pulse starts from the right
