Unformatted text preview: f = n v 2 L , where n is the harmonic number, v is the string wave speed, and L is the string length. Say one changed L by Δ L . What is the expression for Δ f (the corresponding change in f ) according to the 1st order approximation of calculus: i.e., Δ f/ Δ L ≈ df/dL ....
