One of the harmonics on a string 1.4 meters long has a frequency of 18.4 Hz. The next higher harmonic frequency is 23.9 Hz.

(a) What is the fundamental frequency of the string?

f1 = Hz *

5.5 OK

(b) What is the speed of the waves on the string?

v = m/sec

I found the frequency, but im just a little confused on how to find the speed. i know i have to use the equation: v=hf. but im just confused on how to find wavelength... wavelength is the distance it takes to complete a full cycle correct? i dont know where im going wrong in my calculations
