## Homework Statement

If a wave is started up a long rope hanging from the ceiling, it will not climb at constant velocity. Why? Will the wave be traveling faster or slower at the top than the bottom? (Hint: Is the tension of the rope a factor?)

## Homework Equations

v=square root (F/u) (tension over mass per unit length) ?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know how to do this.
