ABSTRACT . In this Experiment we determine the basic concepts of wave forms, By using sine a string vibrator   and a sine wave generator we can examine how tension affects the frequency of certain materials, in this   expermient we use a different gauges of gituiar strings to easily examine  the effect of the hramonic vibration on   certain materials. INTRODUCTION Experiment 303 deals on determining how  tension affects the frequency of certain materials.  Using a guitar string, sine wave generator and a  string   vibrator   we   can   have   a   simple   and   more  precise and accurate model on how frequency and  tension affect on materials. This experiement is important on the field of  engineering,   because   its   concept   is   used   on  different areas such as strength of materials, signal  processing and other different areas.  As a simple application; Imagine a hangging  bridge,   if   a   strong   force   of   wind   hits   a   hanging  bridge it would sway back and forth or   up and  down, let the wind be the wave generator and the  bridge be the string. If the construction of the bridge  does not cope up with the proper engineering and  testing designs it could cause danger to the public.  Like   what   happen   on   the   famous   video   of   the  Tacoma Narrows Bridge(“Galloping Gertie “) where it collapsed because of the failure design to withstand
