A string has a linear mass density of 3.4 g/m. When a sinusoidal wave is created on the string with a speed of 32.8 cm/s the displacement of the particles on the string at x=13.3 cm varies with time according to the following equation: y=4.4sin[1.1-3.3 t] cm. Find the frequency.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Well, I am stuck on this question and need a kick in the right direction...

v=f*lambda

angular velocity=2*3.14*f=wave#*velocity

I really dont have a clue as to where to begin...
