Looking for formula to equate force to oscillation frequency/length

  1. Jun 1, 2010 #1
    Hi, i am interested in figuring out the tension strength on a guitar string, by using its oscillation frequency (or fundamental harmonic) and its length.. I looked online but cant find much... I tried some dimensional analysis but couldnt come up with much
