Two sinusoidal waves with the same amplitude of
9.00 mm and the same wavelength travel together along a string that
is stretched along an χ axis. Their resultant wave is shown twice in Fig.
1, as valley A travels in the negative direction of the χ axis by
distance d=56.0 cm in 8.0 ms. The tick marks along the axis
are separated by 10 cm , and height is 8.0 mm . Let the equation
for one wave be of the form y(x,t) y si n(kx ± ωt ＋φ1) ,
where φ1=0 and you must choose the correct sign in front ofω. .
For the equation for the other wave, what are (a) y , (b) k, (c) ω , (d)φ2
, and (e) the sign in front of ω ?
since the wave travels in the... View the full answer
