Introductory Exercise 14.1

Q.1. Prove that the equation y = a sin wt does not satisfy the wave equation and hence it does not represent a wave.
Sol.

Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Hence, the given equation does not represent a wave equation.

Q.2. A wave pulse is described by Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev , where a, b and c are positive constants. What is the speed of this wave?
Sol.

Speed of wave

= c/b

Q.3. The displacement of a wave disturbance propagating in the positive x-direction is given by Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev and Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
where, x and y are in metre. The shape of the wave disturbance does not change during the propagation. What is the velocity of the wave?
Sol.

At t = 0, y is maximum at x = 0.
At t = 2 s, y is maximum at x = 1 m.
Hence, in 2 s, wave has travelled 2m in positive x-direction.
Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
= +0.5 m/s

Q.4. A travelling wave pulse is given by, Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Here, x and y are in metre and t in second. In which direction and with what velocity is the pulse propagating? What is the amplitude of the pulse?

Sol. Since the coefficient of t and x are opposite signs, the wave is travelling along negative x-direction. Further,
Speed of wave = Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Amplitude = maximum value of y
= 10/5 = 2m

Q.5. If at f = 0, a travelling wave pulse on a string is described by the function,
Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Here x and y are in metre and t in second. What will be the wave function representing the pulse at time t, if the pulse is propagating along positive x-axis with a speed of 2 m/s?

Sol.  Since the wave is travelling along positive x-direction. Hence, the coefficient of t and coefficient of x should have opposite signs. Further
Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
∴  Coefficient of t = 2 (coefficient of x) = 2 x 1 = 2 SI units.

Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Since, coefficient of t and coefficient of x are of same signs. Hence, wave is travelling in negative x-direction.
or

Substituting x = 0.2 and t = 0.3, we have Vp = 2cos(34)

(d) At P, particle is at mean position. So, v = maximum velocity
Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
= 125.7 cm/s= 1.26 m/s  
Further,  
Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev ...(i)
Sign of v1, the wave velocity is given positive.
Sign of dy/dx, slope of y - x graph is also positive.
Hence, from Eq. (i) particle velocity is negative. vp = -1.26 m/s

Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev
Since wave is travelling along + ve x-direction, at and kx should have opposite signs. Further at t = 0, x = 0 the string has zero displacement and moving upward (in positive direction).
Hence at x = 0, we should have Asinwt not - Asinwt. Therefore, the correct expression is

(b) Putting x = 0.2 m  and  t = 0.15 s  in the above equation we have,
y= 0.0354 m = 3.54 cm
(c) In part (b), y = A/√2
From Wave Motion - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRevto y = 0, time taken is
