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:
The direction of motion of the pulse
Position of rest
A pulse has a speed of 2,5 m·s−1. How far will it have travelled in 6 s?
A pulse covers a distance of 75 cm in 2,5 s. What is the speed of the pulse?
How long does it take a pulse to cover a distance of 200 mm if its speed is 4 m·s−1?
