1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 2kg mass is suspended from a stell wire with a diameter 1mm and a length 0.75m. Caclulate the speed of the transverse wave along the wire. 2. Relevant equations v = root(FL/mass) where F - force of tension, L - length of wire, mass is mass. 3. The attempt at a solution When I calculate this using the equation in the book I get v = 2.7m/s. However this fails to take into account the diameter (cross sectional area of the string). Is this correct?
