    [SOLVED] Assignment Question Help! - Tuning Fork/ frequency

    I've talked to numerous people who can not figure out this question, so if anyone has any ideas on how to do this question please help me!:confused:

    A tuning fork is struck and held next to a vibrating guitar string, and beats of frequency 3 Hz are heard. The guitar string is tightened slightly, and the beat frequency decreases to 2 Hz. What is the new frequency of the guitar string? Explain your reasoning.

    If you want help you need to put some effort into the problem. Those are the rules. So, tell me something about the problem. What concepts apply? What formulas apply?
