y = A sin(30t - 0.041x)

y = -Asin(0.041x - 30t)

this is of the form y = A*sin(k*x - omega*t)

k = 0.041

omega = 30

where omega = 2*pi*f; 30 = 2*pi*f; where f is frequency; use this to solve for answer in a)

b) k = 2*pi / lambda, where lambda is wavelength;

c) the speed of the wave is omega/k = lambda*f
