# Wave theory questions

pinsky
Hello there.

Can someone pleas shead lite on some of these questions.

How does one mathematically calculate (wave equation of a string that has one end tied on a unmoveable wall. The second wave is after reflecting from the wall) the first wave is known to us (u0 omega and k)

$$u_0 \; Sin(\omega t - kx)=- u_0' \; Sin(\omega t + kx + \phi)$$

Conditions for a wave on a string which has a lose end. Why does that point has to always have a maximum amplitude when the string is oscillating?

When we apply a short impulse (force*time) on a string which is attached between two unmovable walls, does it always start to resonate? What determines the harmonic level of the resonation?

have a nice day
