#### Question

A sonometer wire vibrates with frequency n_{1} in air under suitable load of specific gravity of . When the load is immersed in water, the frequency of vibration of wire n_{2} will be .........

(a) `n_1sqrt((sigma+1)/sigma)`

(b) `n_1sqrt((sigma-1)/sigma)`

(c) `n_1sqrt(sigma/(sigma+1))`

(d) `n_1sqrt(sigma/(sigma-1))`

#### Solution

`n_1sqrt((sigma-1)/sigma`

Specific gravity or relative density is

`n_1/n_2=sqrt(sigma/(sigma-1)`

`∴n_2=n_1sqrt((sigma-1)/sigma)`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
