General Properties of Waves (Worksheet 1, Example 3)

(a) Velocity = 30/1.69
                = 17 127/169 cm/s
Ans: 17 127/169 cm/s
(b) No, it is not possible. Adjusting either the amplitude or the damping does not affect the speed of the wave pulse. However, adjusting the tension would change the speed, but it would also change the width of the wave pulse.

Control experiment

Damping adjusted

Amplitude adjusted
Tension adjusted
