Sample problem 1 The equation of a wave traveling along a very long string is , where x and y are in cm, and t is in seconds. Determine (a) the amplitude, (b) the wavelength and frequency, (c) the speed and the direction of propagation of the wave, (d) the maximum transverse speed, and (e) the transverse displacement at x=3.5 cm and t=0.26s . 2 PHYS 2101, P.M.Shikhaliev LSU, Fall 2010
