Statement of a problem № 10192


A 5.7-m wire with a mass of 81 g is attached to the mast of a sailboat. If the wire is given a "thunk" at one end, it takes 0.084 s for the resulting wave to reach the other end. (a) What is the tension in the wire? (b) Would the tension found in part (a) be larger or smaller if the mass of the wire is greater than 81 g? (c) Calculate the tension for a 91-g wire.
