Transverse Sinusoidal Wave Function

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    A transverse sinusoidal wave on a string has a period of 25 ms and travels in the negative x direction with a speed of 30 m/s. At t=0, a particle on the string at x=0 has a displacement of 2 cm and is traveling downward with a speed of 2 m/s.

    Find the amplitude, phase constant, and maximum transverse speed of the string.

    If anyone could give us any help in this it would be appreciated!
