Physics Waves Question?
A wave travels with a speed of v on a speed of v on a string of length L and mass M. The string is stretched to a tension force T. If the linear density is quadrupled, what is the new speed of the wave?
The answer should be v divided by the square root of 2.
Can you please explain each step of the question thoroughly?
Thank you so much!

v=√(T/ρ) ---> √(T/4ρ)
v4= v*√(1/4)= v*0.5= v/2[m/s]
It is 1/2 of the original velocity.
