## Homework Statement

I'm just trying to get an understanding of answering PDEs, so wanted to ask what you thought of my answer to this question.

The one-dimensional wave equation is given by the first equation shown in this link;

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/WaveEquation1-Dimensional.html

where Ψ = f(x, t)

Is f(x, t) = exp(x-ivt) a possible solution?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

∂^2 f/∂x^2 = exp(x-ivt)

and

∂f/∂t = -iv exp(x-ivt)

Possible if v = -i
