Percentage Error GUIDE QUESTIONS 1. In the length measurement of vibrating string, the segment close to the stylus  was not included. Why? The  segment   close   to   the   stylus   was   not  included   since   it isn’t   a  complete whole; also the vibrations are somewhat irregular.  2. What effect does increasing the tension have on the number of segment  formation? Justify your answer. Increasing the tension will decrease the number of segment formation  since the force required to generate the amplitude will increase with tension.  % 5 . 1 % % 100 5 . 49 75 . 48 5 . 49 % % 100 % = × - = × - = error Hz Hz Hz error AV EV AV error n T T L n f 1 2 = μ

3. All strings on the acoustic guitar are of the same length. What characteristic  differences   do   they   have   that   gives   them   different   pitch   (different  frequencies)?  Discuss   other   procedures   that  can  be   done  to  change   the  frequency. The characteristic differences they have that cause them to have  different frequencies are there diameter which causes them to have different  linear density or  μ There are also other ways that can be done to change the frequency of  a string by changing the length, type of material, thickness, and tension.
