Consider the wave described by:

E= 3 sin [pi (x/c - t)*10^13+ pi/6]

True or false?

34. The frequency = 10E13 Hz.

35. The wavelength = 3E-6 m.

36. The direction of motion: positive x direction.

37. The speed = 300 000 km/s.

38. The maximum amplitude = 9

39. The initial phase = π/c

40. It is linearly polarised.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm trying to arrange it into the form E=Asin 2 pi f ((x/v) ± t).
