Problem 35E

If the fundamental frequency of a guitar string is 220 Hz, what is the frequency of the second harmonic? Of the third harmonic?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

Frequency of harmonics of a vibrating string can be found by using the mathematical expression, Where, L - Length of the string

n - Order of harmonics - Wavelength of the nth harmonics

Rearranging this equation we get, ---------------- (1) We know that, wavelength of the string and frequency of the string is related by the equation, -------------------- (2)

Where, v - speed of sound

f - frequency of the string

Rearranging this equation we get, ? -------------------------- (3)

Step 2 of 3

Step 3 of 3
