37. 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 v = p τ/µ = p τL/M ,where τ is the tension in the wire, µ is the linear mass density of the
