## Homework Statement

Two steel wires are stretched with the same tension. The first wire has a diameter of 0.580mm and the second wire has a diameter of 0.88mm. If the speed of waves traveling along the first wire is 54m/s, what is the speed of waves traveling along the second wire?

## Homework Equations

v=sqrt.(F/miu) (miu is mass/length)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to make a proportion. 0.58/54=0.88/x. I got the incorrect answer, though. The answer should be 35.6m/s.
