    The vertical displacement y of the tip of a cantilever beam at a time t is approximated by the formula

    y=0.05 sin(6.5t)

    If y=0.04 m, find all possible values of t for the range 0≤t≤0.5 s.

    I've done questions like these in the past and have completely forgotten how to do them, any haelp would be appreciated

    0.05 sin(6.5t) = 0.04
    sin(6.5t) = 0.8

    This works out to an equation you can solve simply using the inverse sine function. Just be careful and make sure you get all the answers.
