Part 2 - waves in 1D

Assignment 1 by Corinne Lee 45672003

This section is on waves in one dimension. The previous section discusses the concepts of shifting and scaling graphs. This is essential to this section where the fundamental wave equation is formed by these transformations. The image below is a simple cosine wave.

A wave is formed by simple periodic motion (in space and time). Simple waves have several components; wavelength (), velocity (c), time period (1/frequency=1/), amplitude (A) and frequency ().
