A guitar player plays a 440 Hz note, and then increases the effective length of that same guitar string by a factor of two and plays it again. What is the new frequency? 

 

By any chance do you know any physics ?

Halving the string length doubles the frequency and vice-versa....

 

So....doubling the string length halves the frequency....so....the new frequency is

 

220 Hz
