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?
