Transverse waves on a Sonometer wire/bridge . Young's modulus Y = Stress / Strain = 2.2 * 10^11 N/m² Stress = Tension / Cross section area = T / A Strain = 1 % = 0.01 2.2 * 10^11 = (T / A ) / 0.01 = T / (0.01 A) T = 2.2 * 10^9 * A Newtons L = 1.5 meter Volume density d = 7.7 * 10³ kg/m³ Linear density μ = volume density * Area = d * A = 7.7 * 10³ * A kg /meter velocity of transverse wave on the Sonometer wire = √(T/μ) v = √(2.2*10^9 / 7.7*10³) m/sec = 534.52 m/sec Fundamental note has a wavelength = λ = 2 * L = 3 meters. As the given wire vibrates with one loop. Nodes at both ends and anti-node at the center. So half of the wavelength is equal to the length of the wire.

So frequency = v / λ = 178.17 Hz

**(2) 178.2 Hz**
