15-28 Chapter 15 (c) Denote the tension as 0 () , Fx F a x =+ where 0 392 N F = and 7.70 N/m. a = Then the speed of transverse waves as a function of x is 0 dx vF a x dt μ == + and the time t needed for a wave to reach the surface is found from 0 . μ dx td t d x dx dt Fa x == = + ∫∫ Let the length of the cable be L , so 00 0 0 0 0 2 2 L L dx tF a x F a L F aa x μμ + = + + . 21 . 1 0 k gm ( 392 N (7.70 N m)(100 m) 392 N) 3.98 s. 7.70 N m t = EVALUATE: If the weight of the cable and the buoyant force on the cable are neglected, then the tension would have the constant value calculated in part (a). Then 392 N 18.9 m/s 1.10 kg/m F v = and 5.92 s L t v . The weight of the cable increases the tension along the cable and the time is reduced from this value. 15.83. IDENTIFY: The tension in the rope will vary with radius r . SET UP: The tension at a distance r from the center must supply the force to keep the mass of the rope that is further out than r accelerating inward. The mass of this piece in , L r m L and its center of mass moves in a circle of radius 2 L r + . EXECUTE: 2 22 2 ( ) .

P = (c) The graphs are given in Figure 15.84. The waveform is the solid line, and the power is the dashed line. At time 0 t = , 0 y = and 0 P = and the graphs coincide. (d) When the standing wave is at its maximum displacement at all points, all of the energy is potential, and is concentrated at the places where the slope is steepest (the nodes). When the standing wave has zero displacement, all of the energy is kinetic, concentrated where the particles are moving the fastest (the antinodes). Thus, the energy must be transferred from the nodes to the antinodes, and back again, twice in each cycle. Note that P is greatest midway between adjacent nodes and antinodes, and that P vanishes at the nodes and antinodes.
