By applying the **wave equation **we know that the **displacement** on the y-axis is **1.999 micrometers.**

We need to know about **wave equations **to solve this problem. The displacement of the wave on the y-axis can be explained by the **wave equation **

y = A cos (kx - ωt)

where y is y-axis displacement, A is amplitude, k is wave number, x is x-axis displacement, ω is angular speed and t is time.

the wavenumber and angular speed of the **wave equation **can be determined respectively by

k = 2π / λ

ω = 2πf

where k is the wavenumber, λ is wavelength and f is frequency.

From the question above, we know that:

y = 2.00cos (15.7x - 858t)

(x in meters, t in second, y in micrometers)

x = 0.05 m

t = 3 ms

Convert time to second

t = 3ms = 0.003 s

By applying the **wave equation, **we get

y = 2.00cos (15.7x - 858t)

y = 2.00cos (15.7(0.05) - 858(0.003))

y = 2 cos(-1.789)

y = 1.999 micrometers
