2.The calculated frequency is 66.9Hz and the frequency of the AC power from the wall is 60Hz. The calculated frequency is very close to the real frequency.3.There is a lot of room for human error in this experiment. One thing I would change to make the experiment more reliable would be to have a way to attach the force sensor to the table so there would be a constant tension on the wire. When someone is holding the force sensor it was difficult to keep it in the same place to keep the tension constant.Conclusion
The objective of this experiment was to understand the formation and characteristics of different kinds of waves. We measured the wavelength of the transverse standing waves in a string and verified the relationship between the tension of the string and the wavelength. We calculated the wavelength using the equation 2L/n where L is the length of the string and n is the number of loops in the wave. We measured
