Homework Help: Help on tension and linear mass

  1. Sep 5, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Two strings of different mass per unit length µ1 and µ2 are tied together and stretched with a tension F. A wave travels along the string and passes the discontinuity in µ. Which of the following properties of periodic waves will be the same on both sides and which ones will change? speed of the wave; frequency; wavelength. Explain the physical reasoning behind your answers.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
