A transverse wave of frequency 40 Hz(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

propagates down a string. Two points 5 cm apart are

out of phase by p/6. (a) What is the wavelength of the

wave? (b) At a given point, what is the phase

difference between two displacements for times 5 ms

apart? (c) What is the wave velocity?

for a.) I use theta=(sπx)/λ

solving for λ I get λ=.6m

Please help me on part b and c, and check to see if I did part a correctly.
