Here is the problem:

A transverse sinusodial wave on a string has a period T=43.0ms and travels in the negative x direction with a speed of 30.0 m/s. At t=0, a particle on the string at x=0 has a transverse position of 2.00 cm and is traveling downward with a speed of -3.50 m/s.

a) what is the amplitude of the wave? in meter

b) what is the phase constant? in rad

c) what is the maximum transverse speed of the string? in m/s

d) write the wave function for the wave.

y(x,t)=

Use the first equation as the model.

Use that, and post your thinking. I will be happy to critique your thinking. Let me know if you know simple calculus (ie dy/dx)
