For supplement problem 2 K-4, we are asked to
1)interpret physically the solution of w = f(x+ct)
2)say what f(x) represents and
3)state the relation of f(x+ct) to f(x)
For (1) is it fair to say that f(x+ct) represents a wave travelling in the negative x direction? My answer for (2) is that is represents a 'snapshot' of the wave at t = 0 and for (3), f(x+ct) is a translation of f(x) in the negative x direction by magnitude ct. Are there any other interpretations?
