The displacement (in meters) of a wave is y= 0.26 sin (pi *t-3.7 pi *x), where t is in seconds and x is in meters.
(a) Is the wave traveling in the +x or -x direction?
(b) What is the displacement y when t= 38 seconds and x= 13 meters?
The general wave equation is given as :
y(x,t) = A*sin(kx-wt+phi)
a)In this ...
The narrative and calculations clearly define the solution. The mathematical description of wave, direction and displacement are provided.
Wave Direction and Wind
On a rather cold and rainy day we observed that the wind was blowing from the NE and the waves were traveling in all directions. Why would this be?View Full Posting Details
