Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,

I am doing this question where it asks if I increase the tension of a two loop standing wave without changing the frequency, what kind of standing wave will I get? I came to the conclusion that it would become a one loop standing wave as f= 2L/(n) as I plugged in 2 for n and I got 1L. I was wondering if my thought process was correct or not.

HI,
This belongs in the homework forum -- where you need to contribute a formula that says something about the relationship between tension and frequency. And: your thinking is right, but: just increasing the tension would be enough ? Or would you need a specific tension ?
