1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A particularly beautiful note reaching your ear from a rare Stradivarius violin has a wavelength of 39.1 cm. The room is slightly warm, so the speed of sound is 344 m/s. If the string's linear density is 0.560g/m and the tension is 160N , how long is the vibrating section of the violin string? 2. Relevant equations f=c/wavelength f=sqrt(F/(m/L))/(2L) 3. The attempt at a solution frequency = (344m/s) /(.391m) = 879Hz 879=sqrt(160/(.000560/L))/(2L) i converted .560g/m to .000560kg/m because force is in Newtons did algebra and got that length is 10.81m, which is wrong. Not sure what I did wrong though.
