If the tension in string is doubled what will be the effect on the speed of standing waves in the string?

The velocity of a travelling wave in a stretched string is determined by the tension and the mass per unit length of the string.

The wave velocity is given by


When the wave relationship is applied to a stretched string, it is seen that resonant standing wave modes are produced.

So, if we double the tension the speed will increase 1.41 times or root (2) times.

  1. When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user
    can be aware of it. Therefore that's why this piece of writing
    is amazing. Thanks!
