Unformatted text preview: fundamental frequency is the string vibrating? n = L /( /2) = 2 L / = 2(8.1 m)/(3.24 m) n = 5 3. Changing the phase constant in a wave has what effect? (Circle the correct answer.) It changes the wavelength of the wave. It shifts the wave so that it begins its cycle at a different place and/or time. It changes the maximum displacement of the wave. It changes the frequency of oscillation. It changes the direction of motion of the wave. It affects all of the quantities listed above. It affects none of the quantities listed above....
