2. $\frac{u}{\lambda }$

3. $\sqrt{\mu \lambda }$

4. $\frac{\mu }{2\lambda }$

A string is cut into three parts, having fundamental frequencies n1, n2, and nrespectively. The original fundamental frequency "n" is related by the expression:

1. $\frac{1}{n}=\frac{1}{{n}_{1}}+\frac{1}{{n}_{2}}+\frac{1}{{n}_{3}}$

2. $n={n}_{1}×{n}_{2}×{n}_{3}$

3. $n={n}_{1}+{n}_{2}+{n}_{3}$

4. $n=\frac{{n}_{1}+{n}_{2}+{n}_{3}}{3}$
