1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Algebra based physics: A 23 kg mass is suspended from the bottom of a rope of length 2.4 m and mass 17 kg. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Find time for a transverse wave to travel the length of the rope. Answer in units of sec. 2. Relevant equations u= mass rope/ length rope F=mg v= d/t 3. The attempt at a solution u= 17kg / 2.4m = 7.0833333 v= sqr (17+23)(9.8)/7.0833333 v= 7.439165039 t= d/v t= 2.4m / 7.439165039 t= 0.322616851 s This answer is wrong and i've had 2 tutors look over this but couldn't figure where the problem is.
