Answer:

See below .

Explanation:

Frequency all depends upon vibration produced per second . for lets suppose you have a wire of mas 10 #Kg# and its length is 100 #m# the and its tension on it let 10 #N# The frequency produced in given by formula
#nu=1/(2l)sqrt(T/m)#
where ,
'm' is mass per unit length substituting the values we get 0.05#Hz#
which is pretty less but on the other hand if we use the wire of much lesser mass say 50#gm# and keeping all other parameters constant we get 0.77#Hz# which is comparatively much higher .
