Wassup guys, I'm stuck on question 17 for the 2015 oxford PAT paper. WRITTEN BELOW:
A small boat floats on the sea. It encounters waves of the form y(x,t)=Asin(kx-wt) where y(x,t) is the height of the wave at position x and tim t, and k and w are constants. The waves have a wavelength of 10 metres, amplitude of 0.5metres, and travel at a horizontal speed of 2 metres per second. What is the maximum vertical velocity of the boat?
such a bs question, but will appreciate any help
