A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What happens to the speed of a wave on a string when the frequency is doubled?

I believe that the speed will remain constant, and the new wavelength will be half of the original wavelength. Speed = (frequency) x (wavelength). This depends on the method used to increase the frequency. If the tension on the string is increased while maintaining the same length (like tuning up a guitar string), then the speed will increase, rather than the wavelength.

When you push down on a string to make it shorter what happens to the wavelength?

The wavelength gets shorter.

What happens to the frequency of pendulum if you shorten the string?

When an object with periodic motion has a string and the string is shortened, the frequency would be smaller/reduced.

What is the wavelength of a sound made by a violin string that has a frequency of 640 Hz if the sound is traveling at 350 meters per second?

Wavelength = speed/frequency = 350/640 = 54.7 centimeters (rounded)

What happens to the frequency of a pendulum if you shorten the string?

it will moe faster

Waves with a frequency of 2.0 hertz are generated along a string The waves have a wavelength of 0.50 meters The speed of the waves along the string is?

v=f*wavelength v=2*.5 v=1 m/s

Is a string vibrating at the fundamental frequency the length of half the wavelength?

This question can't be answered as asked. A string vibrating at its fundamental frequency has nothing to do with the speed of the produced sound through air, or any other medium. Different mediums transmit sound at different speeds. The formula for wavelength is L = S/F, were L is the wavelength, S is the speed through the medium and F is the frequency. Therefore, the wavelength depends on the speed of sound through the medium and directly proportional to the speed and inversely proportional to the frequency.

What is a violins A string frequency?

The A string frequency is 440Hz

The wavelength of a wave on a string is 1.2 meters If the speed of the wave is 60 meters per second what is its frequency?

speed = frequency × wave_length → frequency = speed ÷ wave_length = 1.2 m/s ÷ 60 m = 50 Hz.

What happens to the wavelength of a wave on a string when the frequency is decreased?

When the frequency is decreased, the wavelength is increased. Wavelength lambda and frequency f are connected by the wave speed c of the medium. c can be air = 343 m/s at 20 degrees celsius or water at 0 dgrees = 1450 m/s. c can be light waves or electromagnetic waves = 299 792 458 m/s. The formulas are: c = lambda x f f = c / lambda lambda = c / f

Relationgship between frequency of notes and length of vibrating string?

IF the tension in the string doesn't change, AND the string has the same thickness and density everywhere regardless of its length, then a longer string produces notes with lowerfrequencies. If the tension and physical properties of the string don't change, then the frequency is inversely proportional to the length of the string, i.e. if the length is reduced by half, the frequency is doubled etc. Here are some activities you might consider: -- Have a look inside a piano. -- Find a picture of a harp. -- Watch a violinist's left hand closely.

What happens to the speed of a wave on a string when the frequency is lowered?

Frequence of a wave is how often a string oscillates on a specific point between crests. So if the speed of the string is lowered, the crests of the wave will pass the point less often, causing lower frequency
