What will be the speed of the wave on this string?

    :confused: Suppose you have a string with a linear density of 26.9g/m. A tension of 57.9 N is applied to this string. What will be the speed of the wave on this string?

    Suppose you show us some of your work first? :)

    What have you done so far? Or at least what are your thoughts on where you could possibly start?

    If I knew where to start, or if I have done some working, would I be here?

    Google "the wave equation"

    I refuse to believe you are totally clueless. Do you have a textbook? Do you listen during lecture? Do you take notes?
