Solution

## The correct option is C 10 Hz, 30 Hz, 50 Hz Since one end is tied to a light string on the other side. At this point an antinode will be formed and a node will be formed at the fixed end. given m = 80g = 0.08 kg L = 2m μ = mL = 0.082 = 0.04 kgm tension,T = 256 v = √Tμ = √2560.04 = 160.2 = 80 ms−1 fundamental frequency is given by v4L f0 = 804 × 2 = 10 Hz The first overtone is the 3rd harmonic and is given by 30 Hz. The second overtone is the 5th harmonic and is given by 50 Hz
