A tranverse mechanical wave is traveling along a string lying along the x axis. The displacement of the string as function of position and time, y(x,t) is described by the following equiation:

y(x,t)=0.044 sin(4.20x-152t) where x and y are in meters and t is in secnds. Find the wavelength of the wave, the velocity of the wave and the maximum speed in the y direction of any piece of the string.

i have done yet the wavelength and the velocity but i dont know how to calculta the maximum speed in the y direction o any piece of the string.

wavelength= 1.50 meter

velocity of wave= 32.3 m/s

maximum speed= "I don't know"

can anyone help me plz
