A wave travels along a wire at 5 m/sec toward +x. SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing y and t axis system with scale values.

PART a. Using information shown on the diagram, write y(x,t) in terms of k and (omega), with numbers for the constants.
PART b. When t= 3 sec, and at x= 7 m, find y.
PART c. At location x= 2.8 m, when y= -4 m, find the time t.
PART d. Find the maximum particle speed of points on the wire.
