Problem: Two guitar strings made of the same type of wire have the same length. String 1 has a higher pitch than string 2. Circle all of the correct statements. (a) The wave speed of string 1 is greater than that of string 2. (b) The tension in string 2 is greater than that in string 1. (c) The wavelength of the lowest standing-wave mode on string 2 is longer than that on string 1. (d) The wavelength of the lowest standing-wave mode on string 1 is longer than that on string 2.
