Test #1 Your cousin Tom is playing with the clothesline. He unties one end, holds it taut, and wiggles the end up and down, executing simple harmonic motion with a frequency of 2.00 Hz and amplitude 0.075 m. The wave speed is v = 12.0 m/s. At time t = 0 the of 2.00 Hz and amplitude 0.075 m. The wave speed is v 12.0 m/s. At time t 0 the end has maximum positive displacement and is instantaneously at rest. Write a function describing the traveling wave at position x and time t . Hint: figure out the amplitude (A), frequency (f) and wavelength ( λ ) first. ( ) A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
