How to Calculate the maximum transvers accleration and velocity

  1. Nov 27, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A horizontal string tied at both ends is vibrating in its fundamental mode. The traveling waves have speed , frequency , amplitude , and wavelength .

    Calculate the maximum transverse velocity of the point located at lambda/4.
    Calculate the maximum transverse acceleration of the point located at lambda/4.

    Express your answer in terms of the variables v,f,A,lambda, and appropriate constants.


    2. Relevant equations
    Vmax=Acoskx
    amax=(2pif)vmax


    3. The attempt at a solution

    vmax=2pifa
    amax=4Api^2f^2

    These equations are meaningless until you define the variables.
    Please use subscripts, superscripts, symbols, to make the equations clearer. (Click on Go Advanced.)
