The vibration of the fork is perpendicular to the string. Its frequency is 400 Hz and the amplitude of its oscillation is 0.50 mm.

A tuning fork attached to a taut string generates transverse waves. The vibration of the fork is perpendicular to the string. Its frequency is 400 Hz and the amplitude of its oscillation is 0.50 mm. The string has a linear mass density of 0.010 kg/m and is under a tension of 1.0 kN. Assume that there are no waves reflected at the far end of the string.    (a) What are the period and frequency of waves on the string?

(b) What is the speed of the waves?

(c) What are the wavelength and wave number?

(d) What is a suitable wave function for the waves on the string?

(e) What is the maximum speed and acceleration of a point on the string?
