41. Possible wavelengths are given by λ = 2 L / n , where L is the length of the wire and n is an integer. The corresponding frequencies are given by f = v / λ = nv /2 L , where v is the wave speed. The wave speed is given by /, vL M τμ τ == where is the tension in the wire, μ is the linear mass density of the wire, and M is the mass of the wire.
