Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Bruce on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 4:13pm.

A sinusoidal wave traveling on a string is moving in the positive x-direction. The wave has a wavelength of 8 m, a frequency of 60 Hz, and an amplitude of 9 cm. What is the wave function for this wave? (Use any variable or symbol stated above as necessary.)

I think the function follows this format:
y(x,t)=A*sin(kx-wt+phase shift), but im not sure how apply it to this problem. Any help or suggestions is appreciated, thank you!
