A guitar string is 90.0 cm long and has a mass of 3.17 g. From the bridge to the support post is 60.0 cm and the string is under a tension of 506 N. What are the frequencies of the fundamental and first two overtones? (f1,f2,f3)
The Attempt at a Solution
I checked in my text and found that for f1, l=1/2[tex]\lambda[/tex]1; for f2, l=[tex]\lambda[/tex]2; and for f3, l=3/2[tex]\lambda[/tex]3. I tried using 60.0 cm (and converted to meters) and 90.0 cm (converted to meters) and 30.0 cm (converted to meters) for l, but nothing worked. I also converted 3.17 g into kilograms so that's not an issue. I'm not sure what to do now..
