Unformatted text preview: Now, we calculate the wave speed: v = r τL m = s (250 N)(10 . 0 m) . 100 kg = 158 m / s . Here τ is the tension in the wire and L/m is the linear mass density of the wire. The coordinate of the meeting point is x = 10 . 0 m + (158 m / s)(30 × 10 − 3 s) 2 = 7 . 37 m . This is the distance from the left end of the wire. The distance from the right end is L − x = 10 m − 7 . 37 m = 2 . 63 m....
