At the extremes of y, the string is unstretched and is not moving, so u k and u p are both at their minimum of zero. h) uk up Fk 2 A2cos2 (t kx) Fk( v) A2 cos2 (t kx) P . v The energy density travels with the wave, and the rate at which the energy is transported is the product of the density per unit length and the speed. ...
