ID Code: G3-52
Purpose: Observe the change in wavelength of a vibrating rope as the tension is varied.
Description: Set the generator frequency using about 250g to produce 2 loops. Quadrupling the weight increases the wave speed (and thus the wavelength) by about a factor of two, creating one loop, while using about 110 grams creates three loops, two-thirds of the original wavelength. This is Mersenne's second law for stretched strings.
