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 f 2.00 Hz and amplitude 0.075 m. The wave speed is v =12.0m/s.Att imet =0the 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. ( , ) 0.2cos 12.6 1.05 ytx t x =− () B.
