**Longitudinal and transverse waves....**

## Homework Statement

A string is stretched so that its length is increased by 1/n of its original length. The ratio of fundamental frequency of transverse vibration to that of fundamental frequency of longitudinal vibration will be?

## Homework Equations

v=(T/(mass per unit length))

^{1/2}

v= f*lambda

v= velocity

f=frequency

lambda= wavelength

## The Attempt at a Solution

How to deal with these questions? I dont have much of a clue....Please help....

The textbook has not dealt with situations where two waves are occuring simultaneously....

Ususally its either one of them and i know how to deal with them.....using the formula for frequency as mentioned above....
