Top best answers to the question «What is the relationship between linear density and wave speed»

  • Greater tension means greater acceleration of particles, which means greater speed of particles and thus greater wave speed. Greater linear density means greater mass within a length. Greater mass means greater inertia so it is harder to change its motion. As a result, the wave propagates slower.
