Let λ be the wavelength of a wave on a stretched string of mass per unit length m and n be its frequency. Write the relation between n, λ, F and m? Further if λ = 2l, what would be the relation between n, l, F and m?

Further, for the simplest mode of vibration, at the two ends of the string, there are nodes and in between the two nodes is an antinode. Therefore, l = l/2 or λ = 2l, hence n = λ/2l 

 If the string vibrates in p segments, the λ = p l/2 or λ = 2l/p. Then n = (p/2l)
