1. Homework Statement

A string with mas M and length L is hanging freely and the mass is uniformly distributed along its length.

## Homework Equations

a: Fend the tension in the string as a function of x, M, L , and g

b: Show that speed of transverse wave v is x dependent and find v as a function of x, M, L, and g.

c:

## The Attempt at a Solution

a: ##F_{T}=\frac{L-x}{L}Mg##

b: ##v=\sqrt{\frac{F_{T}}{\mu }}=\sqrt{\frac{\frac{L-x}{L}Mg}{\frac{M}{L}}}=\sqrt{\frac{L(L-x)g}{L}}=\sqrt{(L-x)g}##
