With what force must the string be strained (stretched) so that its basic frequency will equal 660 Hz (E-string)? What is the maximum velocity and acceleration of the parts of the string, if we evoke basic vibration with amplitude of 5 mm? In the rest, the fastened string is long l = 325 mm, the density of steel is 7800 kg/m3. 2. Relevant equations μ= m/L v= 2Lf a(max)= ω²A 3. The attempt at a solution First part: With what force must the string be strained so that its basic frequency will equal 660 Hz (E-string)? Volume of cylinder: V= πr²h= π(1/d)²L= 16 x 10^-9 m³, ρ= 7800 kg/m³ Mass of the string: m= Vρ= 0.00013 kg Linear mass density: μ= m/L (kg/m)→ μ= 0.0004 kg/m v= 2Lf= 2(0.325m)(660 hz)= 429 m/s v= sqrt(T/ μ) → T or F= μv² F= 73.61 N Second part: What is the maximum velocity and acceleration of the parts of the string, if we evoke basic vibration with amplitude of 5 mm? v= 2Lf= 2(0.325m)(660 hz)= 429 m/s a(max)= ω²A= (2πf)²A= 85897m/s²}
