The vertical displacement of an ocean wave is described by the function, *y* = *A* sin(*ωt* - *kx*). *k* is called the wave number (*k* = 2*π*/*λ*) and has a value of *k* = 19 rad/m. The remaining values are *A* = 4.5 m and *ω* = 15.5 rad/s.

What is the wave's velocity in m/s?

Step 1

The vertical displacement of an ocean wave by the function (y),

Step 2

The wave number (k),

Step 3

The wavelength (&...
