**One type of steel has a density of 7000 kg/m^3 and a breaking stress of 7.30×10^8 Pa. A cylindrical guitar string is to be made out of a quantity of steel with a mass of 3.50 g.**

What is the length of the longest and thinnest string that can be placed under a tension of 930 N without breaking?

What is the highest fundamental frequency that this string could have?

**I know that youngs modulus is tensile stress over strain. Tensile strain is delta l / l , and for the second part, i noe that F = V/(2L), but not sure what to do**

**im not really sure how to go about this. I know the stress is 7.3 x 10^8, so i treated that as stress, and divided by Youngs modulus for steel (20x10^10) to get strain (.0039), which i noe is equal to delta l / l. But i am not sure how to proceed**
