Homework Help: Question on Natural Frequencies

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The speed of transverse waves along a stretched spring is 9.05 meters per second. The spring is 4.70 meters long and is held in place at both ends. What are the first three natural frequencies of the spring? Hint: Draw pictures of what the spring will look like when it is vibrating at the first three harmonics.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I just cannot seem to be able to find out the frequency...
