(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

wavelength = 3m

frequency =25 cycles/sec

period T = 1/frequency = .04 sec/cycle

wave propagation velocity =75 m/s

wave number K = 2pi/wavelength= 2.09 radians/m

angular frequency w = 2pi/T = 157 radians/s

phase velocity Vp = w/k = 157/2.09 = 75meters/second

----------------------------------------------------------------x = 200 meters, t= 2.66 s

In the above propagation velocity = phase velocity.

What would vary here for phase velocity to be greater than propagation velocity ?
