Two transverse standing waves are shown in the drawing below.The strings have the same tension and length, but the bottom stringis more massive. Which standing wave, if either, is vibrating atthe higher frequency?
a. The top standing wave has the higher frequency because thetraveling waves have a smaller speed due to the smaller mass of thestring.
b. The top standing wave has the higher frequency, because thetraveling waves have a larger speed due to the smaller mass of thestring.
c. Both standing waves have the same frequency, because thefrequency of vibration does not depend on the mass of thestring.
d. The bottom standing wave has the higher frequency, becausethe traveling waves have a smaller speed due to the larger mass ofthe string.
e. The bottom standing wave has the higher frequency, becausethe traveling waves have a larger speed due to the larger mass ofthe string.
