Before you begin make sure you have reviewed the material on Return Harmonic Motion In A String.
With this lab you will be able to look at the behaviour of a plucked string which is fixed at both ends. You will be able to adjust the density of segments of the string, how far you pluck the string, and the mass of the string.
Things to notice when using the string program:
Questions you might try to answer:
*note: when changing the density of the string be aware that the string's density changes continuosly as you move from one section to another. If you want a more abrupt change, place two points close together and a third point with the same density farther away. This will allow for a longer section with the same density.
