The frequency of the oscillator must be equal to the frequency of the wave. Proceed by finding the frequency of the wave, and then set it equal to LC π 2 1 . Since C is given, you can solve for L . c f = , so LC c f 2 1 = = . Then, LC c 2 2 2 4 1 = , and 2 2 2 4 Cc L = 2 8 12 2 2 9 m) 10 0 . 3 ( F) 10 17 ( 4 m) 10 550 ( × × × = - - L L = 5.0 ×10 -21 H This is very small, much smaller than could be manufactured.

Q16.09. a) For a string that is fixed at both ends, there are two nodes at the fundamental frequency (first harmonic), and a new node gets added for each higher harmonic. Therefore, the seventh harmonic would have 8 nodes . b) Since there are an even number of nodes there can be none in the center. Then, the

Unformatted text preview: center will be midway between two nodes, and there will be an antinode at that point. c) The sixth harmonic will have only 7 nodes on the same string. Therefore, the distance between nodes will be greater, and the wavelength will be longer . d) Since the wavelength is longer, the frequency will be lower , since f = v / λ . Q16.10. Only in case (d) is it possible that the two strings oscillate at the same frequency. Since the tension is higher in string B , while the densities are the same, the wave speed is higher in string B than in string A . Therefore, waves in string B would have longer wavelengths than waves of the same frequency in string A . Case (d) is the only one to satisfy that condition....
