Question

# A longitudinal progressive wave is given by the equation $$y = 5 \times 10^{-2} sin \pi(400 t + x)$$. The amplitude and wave length of the wave are:  [$$y, x$$ are in $$m$$].

A
A=5×102m, λ=2m
B
A=5×02m, λ=3m
C
A=5×102m, λ=4m
D
A=5×102m, λ=5m

Solution

## The correct option is D $$\mathrm{A}=5\times 10^{-2}\mathrm{m},\ \lambda=2m$$$$y=A sin (\omega t + kx)$$$$y=5\times 10^{-2} sin (\pi t \times 400+ \pi x)$$Comparing, we get $$A=5\times 10^{-2}$$ and $$k=\pi$$$$\lambda=\dfrac{2\pi}{k}$$$$\lambda=2\ m$$Physics
