Short Answer

Draw the history graph D(x = 0 m, t) at x = 0 m for the wave shown in FIGURE EX16.5.

The history graph of the wave 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 =0 sec The velocity of the wave is given as v= 1 m/.sec The wave is traveling from right to left direction

Step 2: To draw the history graph of the wave at distance x= 0 m

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

Analyse the snapshot graph

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

The history graph is shown below.
