Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If X(x)=0 and A cos Beta x + B sin Beta x Why does A=0 (meaning the A cos Beta x =0) and not the B sin Beta x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because X(0)=0 means x=0, so that beta x =0, hence sin(beta 0) =0, to get the whole thing =0, cos (0) =1, only one way is that A =0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. So it is all basically because cos (1) is 1, so to get the term on the left =1, A must =0. Since Sin (0)=0, B automatically =0. Is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cos (0) =1, not cos(1) =1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Bsin beta x =0, because sin beta x =0, there is nothing to conclude about B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Thanks a million. That makes sense. So when I introduce that X(l) = B sin Beta l =0 I can say that Sin Beta l=0 .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is, 1 pi, 2 2 pi, 3 pi. To keep A=0 and B=0, both trivial answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0X(l) = B sin Beta l =0 Or B sin Beta l =0 Instead of saying B=0, which is trivial, I can say

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[X(x)=Acos(\beta x)+B \sin(\beta x) \\ \text{ we have} X(0)=0 \\ \text{ so when } x=0 \text{ we have} X=0 \\ 0=A \cos(\beta \cdot 0)+B \sin(\beta \cdot 0) \\ 0=A \cos(0)+B \sin(0) \\ 0=A(1)+B(0) \\ 0=A+0 \\ 0=A \\ \text{ so that means our solution now looks like this } \\ X(x)=0\cos(\beta x)+B \sin(\beta x) \\ \text{ or } \\ X(x)=B \sin(\beta x) \\ \text{ now we are given } X(L)=0 \\ \\ \text{ tso this means when } x=L \text{ we have } X=0 \\ 0=B \sin( \beta L) \\ \text{ dividing both sides by } B \\ 0= \sin(\beta L) \\ \text{ now we know } \sin(x)=0 \text{ when } x=npi \\ \text{ so we have } \beta L =n \pi \\ \text{ and dividing both sides by } L \\ \text{ we have } \beta =\frac{ n \pi}{L} \\ \text{ so now our solution can be written as } \\ X(x)=B \sin ( \frac{ n \pi }{L}x)\]
