Question

If the frequency of the tuning fork at resonance is 256Hz, calculate the frequency of vibration of the wire when the tension in he wire is increased to 196N

Options

A) 130.6Hz

B) 182.9Hz

C) 358.4Hz

D) 501.8Hz


The correct answer is C.

Explanation:

\(\frac{f}{256} = \sqrt{\frac{196}{100}}\)

f = \(\sqrt{\frac{256^2 \times 196}{100}}\)

= 356.4Hz
