A string is fixed at both end. The mass of the string is 0.0090 kg and the length is 3.00 m. The string is under a tension of 200.00 N. The string is driven by a variable frequency source to produce standing waves on the string. Find the wavelengths and frequency of the first four modes of standing waves.

λ 1 = 6.00 m , λ 2 = 3.00 m , λ 3 = 2.00 m , λ 4 = 1.50 m v = 258.20 m/s = λ f f 1 = 43.03 Hz , f 2 = 86.07 Hz , f 3 = 129.10 Hz , f 4 = 172.13 Hz

Olympus Mons on Mars is the largest volcano in the solar system, at a height of 25 km and with a radius of 312 km. If you are standing on the summit, with what initial velocity would you have to fire a projectile from a cannon horizontally to clear the volcano and land on the surface of Mars? Note that Mars has an acceleration of gravity of 3.7 m/s2 .
