What are the amplitude, wavelength, frequency, and phase constant of the traveling wave in FIGURE Q16.7?
The amplitude of the wave is 4 cm, the frequency is 2 Hz and the phase constant is 30o
The snapshot graph of the wave at time t = 0 sec is given.
The speed of the wave is v = 24m/s
The wavelength is the distance covered by the wave in one cycle. From the graph, the wavelength of the wave can be determined easily. The distance covered in one cycle is 12cm
From the given snapshot, it can be observed that the wave is starting from the displacement of 2cm. The phase constant is radians
