Statement of a problem № 41041


The top string of a guitar has a fundamental frequency of 330 Hz when it is allowed to vibrate as a whole, along all of its 64.0-cm length from the neck to the bridge. A fret is provided for limiting vibration to just the lower two-thirds of the string. (a) If the string is pressed down at this fret and plucked, what is the new fundamental frequency? (b) What If? The guitarist can play a “natural harmonic” by gently touching the string at the location of this fret and plucking the string at about one sixth of the way along its length from the bridge. What frequency will be heard then?
