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

A wire with mass 35.0 is stretched so that its ends are tied down at points a distance 83.0 apart. The wire vibrates in its fundamental mode with frequency 64.0 and with an amplitude at the antinodes of 0.270 .

it asks for: Tension

Speed of propagation

maxmimum transverse velocity and

maximum acceleration

2. Relevant equations

Wave equation Asin(kx-wt)

I figured I was suppose to put the equation into this form first, however I was really unsure because I have never done a problem like this before.

3. The attempt at a solution

.270cmSin(7.57x-402.12t)

.270 is given

7.57 i took 2pi/.83 : here I am assuming .83m (83 cm given) is the wavelength, as I did not know what else it could be.

402.12 i have from frequency * 2pi.

I am not sure at all if this is a step in the right direction, any help is really appreciated :)
