There is a tranverse wave induced in a rope with density [tex]\mu_1[/tex] with velocity [tex]v_1[/tex]. It reaches a rope of different density [tex]\mu_2[/tex]. What is the speed of the wave in the new medium, [tex]v_2[/tex]. This is pretty simple but I just don't know what equation to start with.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
