## anonymous 4 years ago Suppose that a guitar string has a length of 1.1 m, a mass of 0.12 kg and a tension of 125 N. What is the speed of the wave on the string?

wave speed 'v' ---> $v = \frac{\sqrt{T}} {\sqrt{mu}}$ where, T=tension mu=linear mass density (i.e. mass per unit length of the wire)

3. anonymous

that means, mu=mass/length

4. anonymous

Hi you can use from this: $v=\sqrt{T/\lambda }$ where lambda is mass per meter
