## Homework Statement

Could anyone explain to me what exactly the wave number (k) represents and what it means in the equation 'cause it's kind of confusing me...Also, there's also the phase constant that i don't really understand as well: phase difference= k(deltax)-w(delta t)...One last confusion, is it possible for a transverse wave to travel in the negative x direction (positive w value) while the particle velocity is positive? Thanks
