Identical ropes were tied to two trees, and two men, A and B, started shaking the free ends at the same instant a short while ago (Figure 1) .
Which rope has the greater tension?
Which man is shaking with the greater frequency?
The Attempt at a Solution
For the first question, I would like to go for that rope B has greater tension, because the whole rope is moving.
For the second question, I went for A>B, because the wavelength is shorter in A than in B. But the answer is wrong, should I go for B>A then? Because the tension in B may be larger than A?
