Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I know how to relate the wave speed to the tension in the string.
[tex]v = \sqrt{\frac{\tau}{\mu}}[/tex]
So as tension increases, so does the wave speed.
But how are the tensions in these two scenarios identical?
I think I can reason it out with words but I'd like to have the math to back it up.
Can someone clarify?
