How do you calculate the displacement of a particle in the y-axis with respect to the displacement of the pulse in x-axis in a simple harmonic progressive wave? A formula says the following: y[equ]a sin (wt+d) where y[equ]displacement in y-axis x[equ] displacement in x-axis w[equ]angular velocity t[equ]time period (?) d[equ]delta (?) Could you specify what t and d are. Also how does angular velocity come into the picture in a wave in which neither the particles nor the motion is in a non-rectilinear path?
