(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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?

2. Relevant equations

frequency is proportional to the root of tension?

3. 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.
