Solution: A transverse wave propagates along the z-direction. At t = 0 s, the displacement in the y-direction is 2 cm. The displacement starts to decrease immediately after, and becomes zero for the first time at t = 0.24 s.  (a) What is the period of the wave? (b) What is the frequency of the wave? (c) If the wave travels 4 m along the z-direction in 0.24 s, what is the wavelength of the wave?

Problem

A transverse wave propagates along the z-direction. At t = 0 s, the displacement in the y-direction is 2 cm. The displacement starts to decrease immediately after, and becomes zero for the first time at t = 0.24 s. 

(a) What is the period of the wave?

(b) What is the frequency of the wave?

(c) If the wave travels 4 m along the z-direction in 0.24 s, what is the wavelength of the wave?
