(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] The maximum and minimum transverse speeds of a point at an antinode

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Adjacent antinodes of a standing wave on a string are 15.0cm apart. A particle at an antinode oscillates in simple harmonic motion with amplitude 0.850cm and period 0.0750s. The string lies along the +x-axis and is fixed at x = 0.

the speed of the two travelling waves are 4.00ms

Find the maximum and minimum transverse speeds of a point at an antinode.

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure

3. The attempt at a solution

Any help, I would have thought that they would have the same speed as the wave, ie 4 ms
