In Chapter 3, we discussed progressive and stationary waves by using the example of a wave on a string. In this section, we shall consider waves on strings in more detail. The two major assumptions are that the string is uniform with mass per unit length, ρ, and that the vibrations are sufficiently small so that the tension, T, remains constant.
