Wevelength of sinusoidal wave generated by oscillator

  1. May 28, 2009 #1
    A sinusoidal wave is traveling along a rope. The oscillator that generates the wave completes 40.0 vibrations in 30.0 s. Also, a given maximum travels 425 cm along the rope in 10.0 s. What is the wavelength?

    Re: oscillator

    For wavelength, you need velocity and frequency.

    I hope I did this right.

    Please do not do the OP's work for him. It's okay to offer suggestions, hiints, and other tutorial advice. The the OP must do the bulk of the work.

    Re: oscillator

    Welcome to the PF. What are the relevant equations for this type of question? There is a reason that we ask you to post the relevant equations when you start a homework/coursework question thread. You should try to use the Homework Help template that you are provided in starting the thread, instead of deleting it and showing no work in your post.

    Please show us the relevant equations and show us your attempt at a solution. (See the Rules link at the top of the page for more information about how to post here)

    Oh crap, I'm new here. I'm sorry.

    Edit: I'll give him hints now, so when he sees this thread, he can proceed right away.

    Wavelength depends on velocity and frequency. How would you find these values with the data given?
