Unformatted text preview: S and L S ? 6. Suppose we have a 42.2 kg mass hanging on a steel wire over a pulley, like in our experiment. We have 0.8 mm diameter wire, made out of carbon steel (mass density ρ = 7860 kg/m 3 ). What is the linear mass density? The length that is free to vibrate is 64 cm. If plucked or struck, assume you will mostly hear the n=1 standing wave. What is the fundamental mode (n=1) for the string? If you were standing near the string, what note would you hear? (pick closest one) ( http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/notefreqs.html will help)...
