(1) A transversal pulse is traveling along a 6m and 120gr metallic wire subject to a 10N tension. Determine the tension in the wire so that the pulse travels with (a) twice the current speed (b) half the current speed.

Solution.-

Note that the wire does not change, and then the only alteration is the tension along the wire and the speed of the pulse.
