# Problem: The equation of a transverse wave traveling along a very long string is given by y = 6.8 sin(0.023πx + 3.2πt), where x and y are expressed in centimeters and t is in seconds. Determine the wavelength2 cm

###### FREE Expert Solution

A general wave solution has the form:

A is the amplitude, k is the wave constant and ω is the angular frequency.

Wave constant:

$\overline{){\mathbf{k}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\pi }}{\mathbf{\lambda }}}$
