35. (a) The wave speed is given by v = p τ/µ ,where τ is the tension in the string and µ is the linear mass density of the string. Since the mass density is the mass per unit length, µ = M/L ,whe re M is the mass of the string and L is its length. Thus v = r τL M = s (96 . 0 N)(8 . 40 m) 0 . 120 kg
