A wave in a string has an amplitude of 2 cm. The wave travels in the +ve direction of x -axis with a speed of 128 ms-1 and it is noted that 5 complete waves fit in 4 m length of the string. The equation describing the wave is

• y = (0.02) m sin (7.85 x +1005t)

• y = (0.02) m sin (15.7 x -2010t)

• y = (0.02) m sin (15.7 x + 2010t)

• y = (0.02) m sin (15.7 x + 2010t)
