(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Consider a transverse wave represented by the function

y = 2.3 sin(1.9x - 25t)

where y, x, t are in meters, meters, and seconds

Determine the speed in m/s

2. No relevent equations.

3. I don't understand the way this problem is written. It seems like there are three variables with one equation, and I am supposed to arrive at a specific answer. Does anyone understand how to start this problem? Thanks very much for your help.
