										Sol. A tuning fork produces 4 beats with a known tuning fork whose frequency = 256 Hz
So the frequency of unknown tuning fork = either 256 – 4 = 252 or 256 + 4 = 260 Hz
Now as the first one is load its mass/unit length increases. So, its frequency decreases.
As it produces 6 beats now original frequency must be 252 Hz.
260 Hz is not possible as on decreasing the frequency the beats decrease which is not allowed here.
