# A guitar string oscilates at a frequency of 100 Hz and produces a sound wave (a) What do you think the frequency of the sound wave is that the vibrating string produces? (b) If the speed of the sound wave is v = 343 m/s, what is the wavelength of the sound wave?

(a) The frequency of the sound wave is same as that of vibrating string, that is, f = 100 Hz
(b) The wavelength of the sound wave is given by
$\lambda =\frac{v}{f}=\frac{343}{100}=3.43m$
Result:
(a)100Hz
(b)3.43m
