Speed of wave

The mass of a 4 m wire is 0.01 kg and it is stretched by a force of 400 N. What is the speed of transverse wave in the wire?


Speed of transverse wave in a wire is v=Fμ
Where F is the tension and μ is mass per unit length of the wire.
Here F = 400 N and μ=0.01kg4m=.0025kg/m v=400.0025=400m/s
