## Homework Statement

A vibrating string on a violin is 330 mm long and has a fundamental frequency of 659 Hz. What is its fundamental frequency when the string is pressed against the fingerboard at a point 60 mm from its end?

*The answer is 805 Hz

## Homework Equations

f = [tex]\overline{}nv[/tex]/2L

wavelength = v/f

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't understand what to do with the 60mm. It splits the string into 2 unequal parts, which isn't a harmonic I recognize.
