Pulse travel homework

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    I have tried this problem many times using different equations and none of them have worked how do I solve this?

    A cord of mass 0.51 kg is stretched between two supports 26 m apart. If the tension in the cord is 148 N, how long will it take a pulse to travel from one support to the other?
