## Homework Statement

The fundamental frequency of a violin string is 283 Hz. Calculate the frequency of the 2nd harmonic.

Known:

f = 283 Hz

## Homework Equations

v = fλ

f(n) = n*v/2L

λ= L

v(sound) = 343 m/s

## The Attempt at a Solution

λ = 343/283 = 1.21 m

f(2) = 2*343/2*1.21 = 283 Hz.

I'm getting the same answer as the original problem and I'm not too sure where to go from here. Any help would be much appreciated! Thankyou
