## Homework Statement

A transverse wave on a string is described by the wave function: y=(0.120m)sin([tex]\frac{\Pi}{8}[/tex]x+4[tex]\Pi[/tex]t) Determine the transverse speed and acceleration of the string at t=0.200s for the point on the string located at x=1.60m. What are the wavelength, period, and speed of propagation of this wave?

## Homework Equations

v

_{y}= -[tex]\omega[/tex]Acos(kx-[tex]\omega[/tex]t)

Since f=[tex]\frac{1}{T}[/tex] and [tex]\omega[/tex] is 4[tex]\Pi[/tex] does that mean T=0.500?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I was able to come up with -1.51 for the transverse speed, and I am pretty sure I understand why the acceleration is 0. I am having problems coming up with the wavelength and the proagation speed.
