1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Along a long tense rope are traveling transverse waves with amplitude A= 10 cm. What is the wavelength, if at any given time the distance between two consecutive neighboring waves y= 5 cm is d= 6 cm? With what velocity are the waves spreading, if the maximum transverse speed of the rope is ω= 0.1m/s? 2. Relevant equations v= fλ k= 2π/ λ y= A sin(k*x) 3. The attempt at a solution For the wavelength: k= 2π/ λ → λ= 2π/ k Calculating k: y= A(sin k)(sin x) → sin k= y/ A(sin x) sin k= 5, which is wrong Where is my mistake?
