# Wave Problem

Hey!
Here is one that I thought would be easy:

Two traveling waves move on a string that has a fixed end at x=0. They are identical except for opposite velocities. Each has an amplitude of 2.46mm, a period of 3.65ms, and a speed of 111m/s. Write the wave function of the resulting standing wave.

The wave would be represented by the function, y(x,t)=(A_sw)(sinkx)(sinwt)

k=w/v=1720/111=15.5/m

This is not right though... any ideas? I am least sure about k.
