**1. Homework Statement**

The middle C string of a piano is supposed to vibrate at 261.6 Hz when excited in its fundamental mode. A piano tuner finds that in a piano that has a tension of 900N on this string, the frequency of the vibration is too low (flat) by 15 hz. How much must he increase the tension of the string to achieve the correct frequency?

**2. Homework Equations**

This is what I can't find.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

At first glance to me this problem seems extremely easy, just use a certain formula that relates tension to frequency in some way, but I've looked high and low in the book and can't seem to find it. All I really need is an equation to relate the two.

Thanks!
