Two Velocities in a Traveling Wave

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The answer I tried is selected.

    Edit: Nevermind, I figured out that v_x = 0. The string doesn't move in the x direction while the wave does. (v_p is the velocity of the wave)

    Glad you figured it out. I moved this from Advanced Physics to Intro Physics, BTW.
