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

A transverse harmonic wave travels on a rope according to the following expression:

y(x,t) = 0.18sin(2.2x + 17.1t)

The mass density of the rope is μ = 0.146 kg/m. x and y are measured in meters and t in seconds.

2. Relevant equations

I do not know what to use.

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to use change in wavelength / time but could not get the answer.

Tried to use v=f*lamda, and use T=1/f but no avail.
