Expert Answer:


Since a progressive wave is a travelling wave so the displacement is a function of position as well as time. In general the displacement y is a function f of time t and position x of the element and y = f(x,t).

For a sinusoidal wave we can write y = ymsin(kx-wt).

I don't know if this exactly answers your question, if there was something else that you were asking please let us know.
