IB Physics: Optional Practical: Skipping rope

When a rope is used as a skipping rope it forms a shape the same as the shape of the first harmonic of a guitar string. Unlike a guitar string this pattern can be formed at any frequency. In this experiment you are going to find out if the equation for the standing wave also applies to the skipping rope.If we assume the equation for the skipping rope is the same as that for a wave then velocity v = √(FT/μ) where FT...
