Short Answer

Draw the history graph D(x = 4.0 m, t) at x = 4.0 m for the wave shown in FIGURE EX16

The history graph is shown

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Write the given information

The snapshot graph of the wave is given at time t =2 sec and x= 4.0m The velocity of the wave is v = 1m/s The wave is traveling from left to right

Step 2: To draw the history graph of the wave at x=4 m 

A snapshot graph shows the displacement of the wave with respect to the position at a given time. A history graph shows the displacement of the wave with respect to the time at a given position.

Analyze the snapshot graph

  • With every second, the wave travels 1-meter to the right
  • The wave would travel 4-meters in 4 seconds

The history graph is shown below.
