So, I was wondering how I can correlate frequency, amplitude, wavelength, period, and time with each other. I'm trying to solve this problem. A 4.5 Hz wave with an amplitude of 12 cm and a wavelength of 27 cm travels along a stretched horizontal string. a) how far does a given peak on the wave travel in a time interval of 0.50 seconds? b)how far does a knot on the string travel in the same time interval?

I just would like the basic conceptions explained so I can try to figure this problem out myself! Thanks.
