Homework Statement
The question is to sketch for values of t = 0, t =0.25, t = 0.5, t=1 and t = 1.25 for the wave equation
Ytt = Yxx in the infinite domain with initial conditions
y(x,0) = f(x) =
\begin{cases}
1 & \text{if } 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 \\
& 0 (otherwise)
\end{cases}
Yt(x,0) = 0
Homework Equations
Y(x,t) = a(x,t) + b(x,t)
where a(x,t) = ## \frac {1} {2} \ ## f(x+t)
and b(x,t) = ## \frac {1} {2} \ ## f(xt)
The Attempt at a Solution
These are the sketches I obtained for those times and they are not to exactly measured to the points as I did them in paint. Can someone please tell me if the sketches are correct for this question!
for t =0
for t= 0.25
