What is the maximum magnitude of the transverse speed of the string?

  1. Sep 2, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The wave function for a traveling wave on a taut string is (in SI units) the following equation.

    y(x, t) = (0.12 m)sin(6πt - 3πx + π/4)
    What is the maximum magnitude of the transverse speed of the string.

    I don't quite understand the question.
    Does it mean the speed of the string when it reached the highest point?
    or it is asking for the amplitude?

    does this solve the problem? A x V?
    or I should sub in the A into the x in order to get the time t and then solve for the speed?
