Short Answer

The two strings in FIGURE P17.49 are of equal length and are being driven at equal frequencies. The linear density of the left string is 5.0 g/m. What is the linear density of the right string?

The linear density of the right string is

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: The concept of linear density 

Linear density is defined as the mass per unit length of a strand.

Step 2: The key solution to the problem 

At first, the concept related to the difference between the same frequency is related to the same tension force. therefore, the provided equation of the frequency is

the following equality will be

Therefore, the simplification will be

So the linear density will be
