A wave traveling on a string is described by the equation
the speed of the wave,
the displacement of a particle on the string located at x = 0.50 m and at t = 2.0 s, and
the acceleration of a particle on the string located at x = 0.20 m and at t = 3.5 s.
a. Speed of the wave = m/s
a. The wave is written in the form
b. To find the displacement, substitute 0.50 m for x and 2.0 s for t in the equation for the displacement
b. The displacement = m
c. The acceleration of the particle is
c. The acceleration= m/s^{2}
