Short Answer

Draw the snapshot graph D (x, t = 1.0 s) at t = 1.0 s for the wave shown in FIGURE EX16.7.

The snapshot graph of the wave is shown.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Write the given information

The history graph of the wave is given at distance x= 0 m The velocity of the wave is given as v = 1 m/.sec The wave is traveling to the left.

 Step 2: To draw the snapshot graph of the wave at time t= 1.0 sec

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

Analyze the history graph

  • With every second, the wave travels 1-meter to the left
  • In 6 seconds, the wave would travel 6-meters

The snapshot graph is shown below.
