Textbook Problem

A harmonic wave is traveling along a rope. It is observed that the oscillator that generates the wave completes 40.0 vibrations in 30.0 s. Also, a given maximum travels 425 cm along the rope in 10.0 s. What is the wavelength?

To determine
The wavelength of the wave.

Explanation

Given info: The oscillator that generates the wave on the rope completes 40.0 vibrations in 30.0s . A maximum travels 425cm along the rope in 10.0s .

Since a maximum travels 425cm along the rope in 10.0s , the speed of the wave is,

v=425cm10.0s=42.5cms-1

Since the oscillator that generate the wave on the rope completes 40.0 vibrations in 30.0s , the frequency of the wave is,

f=40.030
