Once, again I find myself in need of a little help. Any hints/tips would be well appreciated.
In the arrangement shown in (attachment), a mass m can be hund from a string (with a linear mass density of .002 kg/m) that passes over an ideal pulley. A string with a length of L=2 meters is connected to a vibrator of constant frequency, Find the mass m of the object when the standing waves with a fundamental frequency of 20 Hz are observed in the string.
Update: Alright I substitued a few equations and have determined the Tension. My assumption is that the mg is going to be half of the tension (half is mg the other half is the wave). Is this assumption correct? If not, any hints?
