The nature of these conditions will be best realized by considering the case of a stretched string.
us imagine it to form half a wave-length of the extended train Zgahbkc, on an indefinitely extended stretched string, the values of y at equal distances from A (or from B) being equal and opposite.
Then, as we shall prove later, the vibrations of the string may be represented by the travelling of two trains in opposite directions each with velocity /tension=mass per unit length each half the height of the train represented in fig.
If then we resolve Ahbkc into harmonics by Fourier's theorem, we may follow the motion of the separate harmonics, and their superposition will give the form of the string at any instant.

The law that, caeteris paribus, n varies inversely as the thickness may be tested by forming a string of four lengths of the single thread used before, and consequently of double the thickness of the latter, when, for the same length and tension, the compound thread will exhibit double the number of ventral segments presented by the single thread.
As in the case of a musical string, so here we find that the pitch of the note is higher for a given plate the greater the number of ventral segments into which it is divided; but the converse of this does not hold good, two different notes being obtainable with the same number of such segments, the position of the nodal lines being, however, different.

the pressure of the smooth surface, or the tension of the string), so that the problem is still determinate.
A number of particles attached at various points of a string are acted on by given extraneous forces Pi, P, P3.
The relation between the three forces acting on any particle, viz, the extraneous force and the tensions in the two adjacent portions of the string can be exhibited by means of a triangle of forces; and if the successive triangles be drawn to the same scale they can be fitted together so as to constitute a single force-diagram, as shown in fig.
These latter lines measure the tensions in the successive portions of string.
The tensions in the successive portions of the string are therefore proportional to the respective lengths, and thelinesBH,CK.., are all equal.
It is evident that a system of jointed bars having the shape of the funicular polygon would be in equilibrium under the action of the given forces, supposed applied to the joints; moreover any bar in which the stress is of the nature of a tension (as distinguished from a thrust) might be replaced by a string.
Again, if two bodies are connectedbya string or rod, and if the hypothetical displacements be adjusted so that the distance between the points of attachment is unaltered, the corresponding stress may be ignored.
45; if AB, AB represent the two positions of a string, and T be the tension, the virtual work of the two forces ~ T at A,B is T(AnBjS), which was shown to be of the second order.
Suppose, for example, that we have a light string stretched over a smooth curve; and let Rs denote the normal pressure (outwards from the centre of curvature) on bs.
If the string be on the point of slipping in the direction in which i/i increases, the lower sign is to be taken; hence T = Fs = uT~, whence T=T0ei4, (2)
Again, take the case of a string under gravity, in contact with a smooth curve in a vertical plane.

For investigations relating to the equilibrium of a string in three dimensions we must refer to the textbooks.
In the case of a string stretched over a smooth surface, but in other respects free from extraneous force, the tensions at the ends of a small element s must be balanced by the normal reaction of the surface.
It follows that the osculating plane of the curve formed by the string must contain the normal to the surface, i.
If the inclination of the string to the vertical does not exceed a few degrees, the vertical displacement of the particle is of the second order, so that the vertical acceleration may be neglected, and the tension of the string may be equated to the gravity mg of the particle.
Hence if 1 be the length of the string, and x the horizontal displacement of the bob from the equilibrium position, the horizontal component of gravity is mgx/l, whence The motion is therefore simple-harmonic, of period r= 27ri/(l/g).
For it can only depend on the mass m of the bob, the length 1 of the string, and the value of g at the place in question; and the above expression is the only combination of these symbols whose dimensions are those of a time, simply.
