**Elena**, Friday, July 20, 2012 at 2:44amThe equation of the wave is

y(x,t)= A•sin(2πx/λ - 2πt/T).

Given equation is

y(x, t) = (0.0210 m)sin[(6.91 m^−1)x + (2.38 s^−1)t

Therefore,

A = 0.0210 m

2π/λ =6.91

λ=2π/6.91=0.909 m

2πt/T= 2.38

T=2πt/ 2.38=2.64 s

λ=vT

v= λ/T=(2π/6.91)/( 2πt/ 2.38)=

=2.38/6.91=0.344 m/s
