Question: Show that the wave equation is in not covariant with respect to Gallilean transformations, given the function y=Asin(2pi(x/lambda - ft))(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My main question is inorder to show the covariance of a law, should I apply the law on the primed variables and show that it is satisfied by applying a transformation, or should I make the substitution, apply the law, and then show it is satisfied.

Thank you.
