A wave traveling in the +x direction has an amplitude of 0.45 m, a speed of 6.1 m/s, and a frequency of 16 Hz. Write the equation of the wave in the form given by either Equation 16.3 or 16.4. (Answer in terms of t and x. Assume standard units.)

You have not provided the Equation forms mentioned.

16.3

v = square root(F/(m/L))

16.4

wave motion toward +x

y= A sin [(2(pi)(f)(t))- ((2(pi)(x))/lambda)]

I did it in terms of 16.4 and came up with an incorrect # three times.
