A 17 m string of weight 13kg is tied to the ceiling at its upper end, and the lower is tied to a weight of 13 kg. how long will it take a wave to get from one end to the next? (g=10 m/s^2)

2. Relevant equations

v = (T/u)^(1/2)

3. The attempt at a solution

well, i think mass(y)=(13+13y/17)kg

therefor T=ma= (13+13y/17)kg*19m/(s^2)

V(y)=(T/u)^(1/2)=>> (10y)^1/2

beyond this point i'm stuck. Thanks in advance.
