45. Each wire is vibrating in its fundamental mode so the wavelength is twice the length of the wire ( λ =2 L ) and the frequency is f = v/λ =(1 / 2 L ) p τ/µ ,where v (= p τ/µ ) is the wave speed for the wire, τ is the tension in the wire, and µ is the linear mass density of the wire. Suppose the tension in one wire is τ and the oscillation frequency of that wire is f 1 . The tension in the other wire is

Unformatted text preview: + and its frequency is f 2 . You want to calculate / for f 1 = 600 Hz and f 2 = 606 Hz. Now, f 1 = (1 / 2 L ) p / and f 2 = (1 / 2 L ) p ( + ) / , so f 2 /f 1 = p ( + ) / = p 1 + ( / ) . This leads to / = ( f 2 /f 1 ) 2 1 = [(606 Hz) / (600 Hz)] 2 1 = 0 . 020 ....
