    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    how to find the speed and direction of propagation from the wave equation?


    2. Relevant equations
    y(x,t)=Aexp{B(x-ct)^2}


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Is this

    y(x,t)=[tex]A^{B(x-ct)^2}[/tex] ?

    sorry, but there is an exponential (e) after the "A"
