# Problem: For waves on a string, there are two formulae for the wave velocity: v = fλ and v=sqrt (Ft/μ). For each of the two variables Ft and f, answer the following:1 - How can you increase this variable in the lab?2 - Explain what happens (and why) to v, λ, μ, Ft, and f as a result of this change. (The length of the string is a constant)
