I have to solve the 1-dimensional wave equation using D'Alembert's solution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the solution has the forum 1/2[f(x-ct) + f(x+ct)] + 1/2C*integral(g(s)ds)

and i have two intial conditions f(x) and g(x).... do i just plug in (x-ct) where i see x etc...?

also what is g(s) in the integral?

Thanks

Dan
