Michael Kasha of Florida State University used
physics and mathematics to design a new classical guitar. The model he used for the frequency of
the vibrations on a circular plate was
,
where is the frequency (in vibrations per second), t is the plate thickness (in
millimeters), d is the diameter of the plate, is the elasticity of the
plate material, and is the density of the plate material. For
fixed values of d, and the graph of
the equation is a line (see figure).
Estimate the frequency
