Phasor analysis of transverse wave on a string

  1. Mar 24, 2015 #1
    The way we have a phasor analysis for a point mass executing un-damped simple SHM, is there something like that for transverse waves on a string.
    According to me if we fix the position then we can focus on the isolated SHM at that particular position. Is there any way in which I can relate the young's modulus of elasticity, the tension, angular frequency as well as frequency of the whole wave to a phasor?
    Can the same be done for a standing wave on a string?

    PS. please explain in detail.

    it wou
    he motion although would b oscillatory, wouldn't be simple harmonic.

    I am absolutely sure that the motion will be simple harmonic (assuming the ideal conditions)

    thinking of it, there is a possibility.
