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 = 7860 kg/m 3 ). What is the linear mass density? Click here to enter text. 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? Click here to enter text. If you were standing near the string, what note would you hear?
