Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the transverse speed is the speed perpendicular to wave travel and technically is the partial derivative wrt t so for \(y(x,y) = 2 \sin (4x  2t)\) \(v _{\perp} = \dfrac{\partial }{\partial t}(2 \sin (4x  2t))\) you can get the same result just by choosing a fixed point on the x axis, say , x = 0 and looking at \(\dfrac{d }{d t}(2 \sin ( 2t)\) instead. as if it were a standing wave. at all points you will get the same oscillation in the transverse direction so this works nicely so that leaves us with \(v_{\perp}= 4 \cos(2t) = 4 \cos(2t)\), and we have a wave whose velocity transverse alternates between 4 and 4 as cosine alternates between 1 and 1. so max speed for that = 4 repeat for others....
