# Problem: A transverse harmonic wave travels on a rope according to the following expression:y(x,t) = 0.12sin(2.1x + 17.6t)1) What is the amplitude of the wave?2) What is the frequency of oscillation of the wave?

###### FREE Expert Solution

The wave equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{y}}{\mathbf{\left(}}{\mathbf{x}}{\mathbf{,}}{\mathbf{t}}{\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{Asin}}{\mathbf{\left(}}{\mathbf{kx}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{\omega t}}{\mathbf{\right)}}}$

1)

Amplitude = A
