Wave ?: At what time will the string have the same appearance that it did at 0s?

    Wave ???: At what time will the string have the same appearance that it did at 0s?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    At t=0s a small "upward" (positive ) pulse centered at x= 6.0m is moving to the right on a string with fixed ends at x=0m and x= 15.0m . The wave speed on the string is 4.5 m/s.
    At what time will the string next have the same appearance that it did at t=0s?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    4.5/15= .03s
