Harmonic Wavelengths Of A String Fixed At Two Points Distance L Apart
TECTechnics Classroom   TECTechnics Overview

Harmonic Wavelengths Of A String Fixed At Two Points Distance L Apart Sinusoids 1, 2 and 3 represent the first, second and third harmonics respectively, of a string fixed at two points distance L apart.

(a) Compare the octaves of 2 and 3 relative to 1.
(b)What is the harmonic wavelength of the fourth harmonic?
(c) What is the general equation that relates the harmonic wavelength of the string to the distance L, between the two fixed points?

The strings: S7P4A44 (Motion - Oscillatory).

The math:
Pj Problem of Interest is of type motion (oscillatory). (a) 2 is one octave above 1.
3 is a fifth above the octave.

(b) L/2

(c) In general, harmonic wavelength = λn = (2L)/n. n =1, 2, 3 ...

Math The Universe is composed of matter and radiant energy. Matter is any kind of mass-energy that moves with velocities less than the velocity of light. Radiant energy is any kind of mass-energy that moves with the velocity of light.
