A 2.00 m deep swimming pool is equipped with a wave generator that sends sinusoidal waves across the pool. The equation which gives the water depth, h(x,t), some distance x from the wave generator at any time t is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

h(x,t) = 2.00 m + H cos[ 2π [ t/(4.900 s) − x/(0.4000 m) ] − 5π/4 ]

where H = 75.0 cm.

a. What is the change in water height, with respect to the mean water level, a distance 34.81 m from the wave generator at time t = 10.50 s.

b. How much time must elapse from the instant in part (a) until the water 34.81 m from the wave generator reaches its next maximum?

For a, have been trying to do the question and I'm using deltah = H cos[ 2π [ t/(4.900 s) − x/(0.4000 m) ] − 5π/4 ] but obviously its wrong cuz I'm getting the wrong answer.
