solution t) takes the following form: y(;r, t) :f(r w 222‘) + + of) : Acos[k(:r ~ 7%)] + A cos[k(.r + ’01)]
:A%{eik(1._nt) + €ik(r+z;f} I A%{€iklf(€—iwi +eiwt)} where I have used that v : w/k. We recognize the sum in the last term as being just, twice a cosine (from the Euler identity —see homework i) and then taking the real part is easy (since A is real); we
just need to use the Euler identity again en” : cos(k:a;) + isinch).
3/(17. t) 244%{eikf2('os(wt)} : 2Acos(k17)cos(wt) (1) we recognize this as a standing wave because the x and t dependence are separated. There exists some fixed positions where y 2 0 for all time and similarly there exists fixed times where y : 0
everywhere (for all x’s). 2. For this whole problem, it is useful to define the usual variable 11+ 2 :r + vi and u : .I,‘ a m‘ (a) We start with the following general solution : f(x — of) + 9(13 + wt) and we want to specialize to a solution that satisfy the followmg initial condition ‘11)): l

position which we can take to he y : 0. Hence we have that f : 9(1), the two functions are
identical! (b) Since the string is motionless initially (the transverse velocity is initially zero everywhere) we
can use the result from the last part that f : 9(1). This means that initially we can view

Homework 4 by Louis Leblond (g) up and uk are maximum at y : 0 because this is where the velocity and the slope are maximal. They are zero at a maximum of position because the velocity and the slope are zero at these
points. (h) The total energy 5 is the sum of uk and up, multiply by V to get: P(;r, t) : 5v 2 (uk + up)v 2 211mC : 2ii/LA2w2 sinQUcaL‘ — wt)

where l have used that uk 2 up and that v : t/F/u. We recognize the last equation as the
same as Eq. (15.22) in the text. That the power is 51) makes sense because ﬁrst the units
match. Energy per unit of length times length per time gives energy per time which is power. Also intuitively, we expect the rate of energy ﬂow to be the energy density time the velocity of
propagation and this is what we get. 4. (problem 15 .82) (921% t) 531% t)

PAV 2 —~—— N ow over any period or multiple of a period the integral of sin(2cyt) vanishes as the sin oscillates
between positive and negative values that cancels each other when you integrate. This is different
from (equ 15.25) which is for a transverse wave. In that case, the power is proportional to sin2(wt) which is always positive and gives a nonzero PAV. Hence we have found that a
standing wave does not transfer energy on average. (0) i. at t 2 0, P(a:,0) 2 y(:r, O) 2 0, I will not bother graphing that. ii. at t 2 £7, sin(2wt) 2 1 and sin(wt) 2 t}? so

Homework 4 by Louis Leblond (d) At antienodes, PE is always zero because the slope is always zero7 KE energy varies between
zero when string is maximally displaced and its largest value when string is at equilibrium (hop
izontal). At nodes, KE is always zero because the string never moves; PE varies between zero
when string is horizontal and its largest value when slope is greatest (maximal displacement)
As string moves away from equilibrium energy flows away from antinodes and towards nodes. 5. We have that _1 2 0y 2 A 1 .12 03/ ,1 “A W 5“ t if“ a W

a phase of zero. That means, we need (at least) to have a complete wavelength between A &
B. Therefore the minimum wavelength is 2 meters for constructive interference. (b) To have destructive interference, we need the wave starting at A to arrive at B with a phase shift of 7r. If we have % a wavelength between A 85 B then that should do it. Therefore the P214— Solutions Homework 4 by Louis Leblond minimum wavelength for destructive interference at Q is 4 meters (since %A : 2 meters). 7.
