Determining lowest f of standing wave

  1. Jan 23, 2005 #1
    If the length of a string with two fixed ends and three loops, along with the wave speed is given, how would you find the lowest frequence for standing waves on that string? I thought that the fundamental frequency determined the lowest frequency. Thanks for your help!

    How many wavelengths do 3 loops correspond to??How many loops are needed for the fundamental frequency...??
