The question is A harmonic wave in a wire has amplitude 6.32mm, wavelength 2.99m, and frequency 157hz. The propagation speed of the wave is 469.43 m/s(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The wire has a linear mass density of 11 g/m.

How do I determine the wire's tension?

I can't figure out what equation to use.
