## Homework Statement

At x = 15.0 cm and t = 2.00 s, the displacement of a traveling wave is 8.66 cm. The amplitude of the wave is 10.0 cm, and its wavelength is 8.00 cm. Assume the smallest positive phase angle.

What is its period?

## Homework Equations

y(x,t)=y

_{0}sin2pi(x/lambda-t/period)

## The Attempt at a Solution

y(2)=10sin(8.66/8-2/T)

I don't know if I set it up right, and I don't knw how to solve the equation from here because i don't know the value of y... any and all help is greatly appreciated.
