Please also give expressions for A and B in terms of a and b . [Note: k is a real number. There is no restriction on a and b ] [ ikx e , ikx e ,) sin( kx cos( kx and their arbitrary linear combination all are solutions to the equation ) ( ) ( 2 2 x k x dx d = , but only two of them are independent.] 2) Show that the following function of general sinusoidal wave ) cos( ) sin( ) ( kx b kx a x + = is equivalent to the following expression } Im{ ) sin( ) ( ) ( φ + = + = kx
