A heavy rope is flicked upwards, creating a single pulse in the rope. Make a drawing of the rope and indicate the following in your drawing:

  1. The direction of motion of the pulse

  2. Amplitude

  3. Pulse length

  4. Position of rest

Solution not yet available

A pulse has a speed of \(\text{2,5}\) \(\text{m·s$^{-1}$}\). How far will it have travelled in \(\text{6}\) \(\text{s}\)?

Solution not yet available

A pulse covers a distance of \(\text{75}\) \(\text{cm}\) in \(\text{2,5}\) \(\text{s}\). What is the speed of the pulse?

Solution not yet available
