(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A pulse takes 0.1s to travel the length of a string. The tension in the string is provided by passing the string over a pulley to a weight which has 100 times the mass of the string.

What is the length (L) of the string?

What is the equation of the third normal mode.

2. Relevant equations

v=√(F/u) u=m/L

3. The attempt at a solution

We have L/t = √(100.m.g/(m/L) where g = surface gravity

So 100L^2 = 100gL

so L= magnitude(g) = 9.8 m

This type of question was not covered directly in our notes and I am unsure if my working is correct.

Thanks for any help.
