Question

A transverse wave is traveling on a string. The displacement y of a particle from its equilibrium position is given by y = (0.021 m) sin(25t - 2.0x). Note that the phase angle 25t - 2.0x is in radians, t is in seconds, and x is in meters. The linear density of the string is 2.4 × 10-2 kg/m. What is the tension in the string?
