A traveling wave has displacement D(x,t)=(3.00cm)sin(5.36x-6.71t), where x is in meters and t is in seconds. What is the wave speed of this wave?

**snapshot graph at t=1/4 s

  • Physics -

    v = omega/k

    The wave equation is of the form

    D(x,t) = A*sin(k*x-omega*t)
    k = 5.36
    omega = 6.71

    solve for v, the wave speed
