Part A = The wavelength doubles but the wave speed is unchanged.
Part B = Both wavelength and wave speed are unchanged.

An oscillator creates periodic waves on a stretched string. If the period of the oscillator doubles, what happens to the wavelength and wave speed?

Mastering Physics Solutions: Waves on Strings

On December 19, 2011, in Chapter 14: Sound, by Mastering Physics Solutions

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

An oscillator creates periodic waves on two strings made of the same material. The tension is the same in both strings. If the strings have different thicknesses, which of the following parameters, if any, will be different in the two strings?
