Soln MAE 518 Acoustic Radiation 1 Homework #2 Do the following problems from the text book, Problem 2.8.1 y 4cos 3t 2 x propagating on a string of linear density 0.1g/cm x are in centimeters and t is in seconds. Consider the wave form where y and (a) What are the amplitude, phase speed, frequency, wavelength, and wave number? (b) What is the particle speed of the element at x 0, t=0 ? Problem 2.10.1 A stretched string of length L is plucked at a position L/3 by producing an initial displacement h and then releasing the string. Determine the resulting amplitudes for the fundamental and first three harmonic overtones. Sketch the wave shapes of these individual waves and the resulting shape of the string at t =0 and t = L/c where c is the transverse wave speed on the string. Correction: in the solution of An, there should be no “cos” term
