# A Transverse Wave is Produced on a Stretched String 0.9 M Long and Fixed at Its Ends - Physics

#### Question

A transverse wave is produced on a stretched string 0.9 m long and fixed at its ends. Find the speed of the transverse wave, when the string vibrates while emitting second overtone of frequency 324 Hz.

#### Solution

Length of the string L  m
Frequency, n = 324 Hz

Speed of transverse waves ν = nλ
ν = n(2l)

n = (v/(2l)) xx 2

324 = v/(0.9)

v = 291.6 m/s

Is there an error in this question or solution?
