Waves on Strings

Part A = wave speed, wavelength
Part B = none of the above

Solutions Below:

An oscillator creates periodic waves on two strings made of the same material. The tension is the same in both strings.

Part A

If the strings have different thicknesses, which of the following parameters, if any, will be different in the two strings?

Check all that apply.

A. wave frequency
B. wave speed
C. wavelength
D. none of the above

B. wave speed and C. wavelength both apply

Part B

If the strings have the same thickness but different lengths, which of the following parameters, if any, will be different in the two strings?

Check all that apply.

A. wave frequency
B. wave speed
C. wavelength
D. none of the above

D. none of the above
