The displacement function for a string carrying a transverse wave is
y(x, t) = 2.0mm*sin(20*x/m − 600*t/s)
Determine the amplitude, frequency, velocity and wavelength of the wave. Determine the maximum transverse speed
of any point on the string.
v = (T/mew)^1/2
freq = w/(2*pi)
The Attempt at a Solution
amplitude is pretty easy, amp = 2.0
frequency is pretty simple also by the equation i have gotten above by some substitution, freq = 95.4
i have found the equation for the speed of a wave above, but lack mew(the density of the string). is there any other way to go about getting the speed?
