(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y = (0.10 m)sin(0.77x − 37t),

where x and y are in meters and t is in seconds. If the linear mass density of the string is 11 g/m, determine the following.

the phase constant is 0 rad, but i'm not sure why and what phase constant exactly is couldn't' find it in the book. can anybody explain it to me?

the phase of the wave at x = 4 cm and t = 0.1 s

so i just plugged it in to the equation but that does not seem to be the case..

i'm lost.. and the book doesn't have anything about these

help and thank you
