A string with both ends held fixed is vibrating in its third harmonic. The waves have a speed of 192 m/s and a frequency of 240 Hz. The amplitude of the standing wave at an antinode is 0.400 cm.
(a) Calculate the amplitude at points on the string a distance of (i) 40.0 cm; (ii) 20.0 cm; and (iii) 10.0 cm from the left end of the string.
(b) At each point in part (a), bow much time does it take the string to go from its largest upward displacement to its largest downward displacement?
(c) Calculate the maximum transverse velocity and the maximum transverse acceleration of the string at each of the points in part (a). |
