## Homework Statement

Hi everyone. I am working on a physics research paper on Standing Wave Patterns and the physics of a viola. I found this formula for standing wave patterns and am having trouble making sense of it. When I tried, I got sin(0) which is 0 making the whole thing 0. Is this a valid equation and am I missing something?

w = 2764

t = (1/440)

k = 2pi/wavelength

x = distance traveled.

I am sorry, but I am really confuesed

## Homework Equations

y = 2yocos(wt)sin(Kx)

## The Attempt at a Solution

2yo (2764)(1/440) = 2p1

cos 2 pi = 1

sin (0) = 0

= Ahh!

I may be using the variables wrong, but I used 2pi * frequency to get w, 1/frequency to get t
