I have a question on this problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. 10. A violin string vibrates at 335 Hz when unfingered. At what frequency will it vibrate if it is fingered one half of the way down from the end?

For this one I worked out that string is fixed at both ends because its in a violin so I am thinking of using f=n v/2L where L=1 lambda/2 and v= lambda f. So overall it comes out to be f= nf, so in this case the n would be 1, right so the answer would be the same...right???

I dont know if this is the right approach but this is what I am thinkin...any suggestions might help me figure out this problem..

Thanks!!!
