A sinusoidal sound wave is described by the displacement wave function

b) Determine the instantaneous displacement from equilibrium of the elements of air at the position x = 0.050 m at t = 3.00 msCode (Text):s(x,t)=(2.00 μm)cos[(15.7 m^(-1) )x-(858 s^(-1) )t]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Why is this this not correct?Code (Text):

s (x,t)=(2.00 μm) cos[(15.7 m^(-1) )(0.050m)-(858 s^(-1) )(.003 s) ]
