Part A = 0.82 Click to use the calculator/solver for this part of the problem

You are setting up two standing string waves. You have a length of uniform piano wire that is 4.0 m long and has a mass of 0.150 kg. You cut this into two lengths, one of 1.9 m and the other of 2.1 m, and place each length under tension. What should be the ratio of tensions (expressed as short to long) so that their fundamental frequencies are the same?

Mastering Physics Solutions: Standing Waves on a Guitar String

On December 26, 2011, in Chapter 13: Vibrations and Waves, by Mastering Physics Solutions

Part A = 40cm
Part B = 120cm
Part C = 384m/s Click to use the calculator/solver for this part of the problem
Part D = overtone number = pattern number -1
Part E = This is a complex tone with a fundamental of 400 Hz, plus some of its overtones.

Standing waves on a guitar string form when waves traveling down the string reflect off a point where the string is tied down or pressed against the fingerboard. the entire series of distortions may be superimposed on a single figure, like this (intro 2 figure) , indicating different moments in time using traces of different colors or line styles.
What is the wavelength of the longest wavelength standing wave pattern that can fit on this guitar string? How does the overtone number relate to the standing wave pattern number, previously denoted with the variable n?
