The Vertical Displacement Y(x,t)of a String Stretched Along the Horizontal

Question 14
Short Answer

The vertical displacement y(x,t)of a string stretched along the horizontal x-axis is given by y(x,t)= (6.00 mm)cos[(3.25 m-1)x - (7.22 rad/s)t]. (a)What is the minimum time for each complete cycle of the wave? (b)What is the distance between adjacent crests of the wave? (c)How fast does this wave travel?
