Suppose member of chain at x=0 oscillates with ! Time delay for the oscillation to move distance x is ! Then we can write for the wave y (x,t) : 0 ( 0, ) sin( ) y x t A t !

" April 21, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 4 Wave Number and wave function Wave Number and wave function ! Defining the wave number: similar to ! Note that ! The wave function reads as: ! One can check that: y ( x , t ) = A sin ! t " # x + \$ 0 ( ) ! = 2 " # ( , ) ( , ) ( , ) ( , )
