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

A transverse traveling wave on a cord is represented by D = 0.48 sin (5.6x + 84t) where D and x are in meters and t in seconds. Determine the maximum and minimum speeds of particles of the cord.

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm guessing these speeds are found by the partial time derivatives of D:

dD/dt = 40.32 cos (5.6x + 84t).

Is this right?

So the answer is 40.32 m/s??
