Another Question on Natural Frequencies

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A thin, flexible metal rod has a length of 0.606 meters. One end of the rod is clamped to a table, and the other end can vibrate freely. What are the first three natural frequencies of the rod if the wave speed in the rod is 27.4 meters per second? Hint: Draw pictures of what the rod will look like when it is vibrating at the first three harmonics.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    How would the open end affect the motion? I am confused here...
