Answer



















PoP5 13.24
What power must be supplied to a taut rope of mass 0.180 kg and length 3.60 m in order to generate sinusoidal waves of amplitude 0.100 m, wavelength 0.500 m, and speed 30.0 m/s?
A. 427 kW
B. 18.8 kW
C. 1.07 kW
D. 28.3 W
Answer







































answer

B. −x direction
The positive sign in front of vt in the expression indicates the wave travels in the negative x direction.



















answer

A. 5.00 m/s
The number in front of t in the expression is the wave speed in meters per second.



















answer

D. 13.5 N
solution equation



















answer

B. No
A wave does not invert when it reflects from a boundary where it is going from a slow medium (wood) into a fast medium (aluminum).



















answer

C. 1.07 kW
