For a rope of length L and mass m the linear mass density of the rope is defined as the mass per unit length of the rope Linear Mass Density ( μ ) For a rope of length 5 m that has a mass of 0.10 kg μ = 0.10 kg/5 m = 0.02 kg/m m L µ = For a given material, the thicker a rope the greater is its linear mass density. Units: kg/m
What is the Tension? m Mass attached to a string Pulling on a rope T F mg = T external F F = external F T F T F m g Force transmitted through a string (rope) when pulled by forces.
Speed of wave Wave speed on a string T v F µ = F T = tension in the rope µ = mass per unit length of the rope
