A continuous succession of sinusoidal wave pulses are producedat one end of a very long string and travel along the length of thestring. The wave has frequency 40 Hz, amplitude 5 mm, andwavelength 0.6 m.
How long does it take a point on the stringto travel a distance of 8 m, once the wave train has reachedthe point and set it into motion?
I don't even know where to start. Thank you for thehelp.

speed of wave = frequency * wavelength

$$=40\times 0.6$$
= 24 m/s
time taken = distance / speed
= 8/24
= 0.3 s ( to 1 sig fig)
