I am unable to determine the relationship between x and t in the following equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

y\left(x,t\right)=A\sin\left( kx-\omega t \right)\\

[/tex]

If [tex] \nu=\frac{x}{{t}}[/tex] then the numbers within the bracket goes to zero; because [tex] kx=\omega t [/tex]

for all points on y(x,t).

Can anyone enlighten me please?
