1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data string on a guitar is plucked to excites 3 harmonic. length = 0.3m. tension = 100N linear mass density (mu) = 0.1 kg/m calculate its frequency My friend and I wants to find the frequency using the above information. I think we use different approach, but came to the same solution. YET when we compare it with model answers, it is WRONG (i.e. the model answer is 316Hz) can someone explain why? or was the model answer WRONG? (note: it is an known fact that the model answer is occasionally found to be wrong) thanks! 2. Relevant equations velocity = sqrt (T/mu) L = 3/2 lambda i.e. lambda = (2/3) * L velocity = lambda * frequency i.e. frequency = velocity/lambda 3. The attempt at a solution velocity = sqrt(100/.1) =31.6 m/s lambda = (2/3) * 0.3m = 0.2 frequency = 1/0.2 * 31.6 = 158Hz the answer I got correlates with the answer a friend got too, but is was off by almost 200Hz when compare to model answer. SO it is definitely not due to rounding error. Was we wrong? or was model answer wrong? thanks!!
