I've done an experiment on standing waves on a string.

By graphing √T vs λ (where T is tension and λ is wavelength) using the linearized equation √T = (1/√μ) f ⋅ λ, I was able to get this data:

μ = .000256 kg/m

slope = 1.78 N

y - int = 0.1258 √N

My attempt at finding frequency:

y = mx + b

√T = (1/√μ) f ⋅ λ

(√T/λ) = (f/√μ)

f = (√T/λ)(√μ) , in which (√T/λ) = slope

This means that f would equal .02848 (√kg)/s⋅m

which does not make sense both unit or magnitude wise.

Given frequency is 120 Hz. My experimental frequency is .02848 (√kg)/s⋅m
