Standing question - real straightforward- Workings given !

    W= 27.2

    K=15.71

    A=0.1

    Now to determine the harmonic.

    This formula gives the harmonic to be 4.5. This can't be possible since n has to be an integer.

    I realise this wave has a node at one end and an anti node at the other.

    I also realise that this wave on the string has a wavelength =0.4 by using K=2pi/lambda


    What do I do ? :(

    Or am I wrong in assuming this is a wave has a node at one end and an anti node at the other ?
