Problem 18.5: A standing wave on a stringed musical instrument

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The animation shows a standing wave on a stringed musical instrument (position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds). If the tension in this string is doubled and the string stays in its fundamental mode, what frequency sound is produced by the new standing wave? Restart.
