## Problem 17.10: Determine the properties of the traveling wave

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

- Measure the frequency, wavelength, and period of the wave (
**position is given in centimeters and time is given in seconds**). - Verify that the speed of the wave crest is wavelength times frequency.
- Write down a formula for the wave as a function of both distance and time. That is, write a formula for y(x, t).
