In a standing wave, if the fundamental frequency is 25hz
but the frequency that is currently being fed to the string is 50hz how do i determine what the resulting wave will look like?

Which harmonic of 25Hz is 50Hz?

Is it the second one?

Yes. So if the first mode of the fundamental has a half wavelength oscillation in the standing wave, how many wavelengths will there be for a 2nd harmonic standing wave oscillation?

What about for fundamental frequencies that aren't multiples of 50hz.
How do i calculate what waves would be created?

Edit:nevermind this post, too early in the morning for me.
