Consider two waves passing through the same string.Principle of superposition for displacement says that the net displacement of a particle on the string is sum of the displacements proudced by the two waves individually. Suppose we state similar principles for the net velocity of the particle and the kinetic energy of the particle. Such a principle will be valid for

A tuning fork of frequency 512 Hz is vibrated with a sonometer wire and 6 beats per second are heard. The beat frequency reduces if the tension in the string is slightly increased. The original frequency of vibration of the string is
f1 = 512Hz
f2 = frequency of sonometer wire.
Now, 512 -f2 = 6
By increasing the tension in sonometer wire f2 will increase.
In first case, beat frequency will decreae.
∴ 512 - f2 = 6
or f2 = 506 Hz
