The displacement from the equilibrium caused by a wave on a string is given by: y(x,t) = (-0.00200 m)sin[(40m^-1)x-(800s^-1)t]. What is the number of waves in 1 m?

  • Physics -

    when is 40 x = 2 pi (full wavelength) ??
    when x = pi/20 meters
    that is the wave length

    How many wave lengths in 1 meter ?
    20/pi
