Two sinusoidal waves with identical wavelengths and amplitudes travel in opposite directions along a string producing a standing wave. The linear mass density of the string is μ = 0.075 kg/m and the tension in the string is F T = 5.00 N . The time interval between instances of total destructive interference is Δ t = 0.13 s . What is the wavelength of the waves?

A string is fixed at both end. The mass of the string is 0.0090 kg and the length is 3.00 m. The string is under a tension of 200.00 N. The string is driven by a variable frequency source to produce standing waves on the string. Find the wavelengths and frequency of the first four modes of standing waves.

λ 1 = 6.00 m , λ 2 = 3.00 m , λ 3 = 2.00 m , λ 4 = 1.50 m v = 258.20 m/s = λ f f 1 = 43.03 Hz , f 2 = 86.07 Hz , f 3 = 129.10 Hz , f 4 = 172.13 Hz

Ok i got a question I'm not asking how gravity works. I would like to know why gravity works. like why is gravity the way it is. What is the true nature of gravity?
Daniel Reply
gravity pulls towards a mass...like every object is pulled towards earth
One answer for that is exchange particles. Those particlescreate a field and if there is a field e.g. electromagnetic there is also force. same should go for gravitational field where exchange particle is called graviton and it creates gravitational field, which acts on everything that has mass.
@Ashok no that's how gravity works not why it works

what is the formula for pressure?
Goodness Reply
force is newtom
and area is meter squared
so in SI units pressure is N/m^2
In customary United States units pressure is lb/in^2. pound per square inch
who is Newton?
John Reply
a scientist
that discovered law of motion
but who is Isaac newton?
a postmodernist would say that he did not discover them, he made them up and they're not actually a reality in itself, but a mere construct by which we decided to observe the word around us
Besides his work on universal gravitation (gravity), Newton developed the 3 laws of motion which form the basic principles of modern physics. His discovery of calculus led the way to more powerful methods of solving mathematical problems. His work in optics included the study of white light and
