Transverse waves on a string have wave speed 8.00 {\rm m/s}, amplitude 0.0700 {\rm m}, and wavelength 0.320 {\rm m}. These waves travel in the x direction, and at t = 0 the x = 0 end of the string is at y = 0 and moving downward.

Find the frequency of these waves: (found: 25.0 Hz)

Find the period of these waves. (found: 4.00 E-2 s)

Write the equation for {y}({x},\:{t}) describing these waves. (Stuck).

Find the transverse displacement of a point on the string at x2 = 0.160 m at time t2= 8.50×10−2 s. (Stuck).

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For the third part, this is what I have so far: .07(sin 0)

I don't know if its right. I'm thinking I can probably get the next part if I know what the equation is. Any help? Thanks!
