## Homework Statement

Two strings with otherwise identical properties differ in tension by 0.25 N. If both strings are struck at the same time, what is the resulting beat frequency?

## Homework Equations

frequency is proportional to the root of tension?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried setting T

_{2}= T

_{1}- 0.25 N and substituting this into an equation with f

_{1}/f

_{2}proportional to sqrt{T

_{1}/T

_{2}}.

But I can't seem to figure anything out from this.

Please help! Going a bit crazy.
