Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i have a solution to the following problem but i'm not sure if it's right or not.

If you shake one end of a taut rope steadily three times each second, what would be the period of the sinusoidal wave set up in the rope?

Me, I thought that since I'm shaking the rope three times a second, this would be equivalent to three cycles per second, therefore if i want to find the period (cycles/1 second) I would just have 1/3 cycles/1 second. Did I do this correctly, or is it just horribly wrong? I would really appreciate it, thanks.
