Homework Help: Vibrations and Waves

  1. Jun 10, 2004 #1
    A guitar string is 90 cm long and has a mass of 3.6 g. From the bridge to the support post (= L) is 60 cm, and the string is under a tension of 520 N.
    What is the frequency of the fundamental and the first and second overtone???? :eek:

    if 90 cm of the string is 3.6 g, how much does 60 cm weigh? Do you have any formulas that involve strings that may help you solve this?

    You could try string theory. :rofl:

    Sorry, that won't happen again. I would just use a differential equation.
