Use these graphs for problems 1 & 2 . 1. Explain how you determine the direction that the wave travels (toward positive or negative x). Try to stay away from pronouns (such as it) and jargon. Indicate on the graphs the features that you are using in your explanation. 2. What is the equation for this wave? Show how you determined the value of each term. Either show the calculations or indicate the values on the graphs. Midterm 1B TA Name (last) (first)...
