# Harmonic Wave Equation Calculator

A harmonic wave is defined as a wave with a frequency that is a positive integer multiple of the frequency of the original wave (fundamental frequency). The original wave is referred to as 1st harmonic and the following harmonics are known as higher harmonics. Harmonics is used in music and acoustics, electronic power transmission, radio technology, etc. In the below harmonic wave equation calculator enter the amplitude, wavelength, velocity, time and click calculate to find the result.

#### Formula:

y(x,t) = R[(2 π / λ)(vx - t) + φ]
**Where,**
y(x,t) = Harmonic Wave Equation
R = Amplitude
λ = Wavelength
v = Velocity
x = Distance from the Source
t = Time
φ = Initial Phase

#### Example

**Find the harmonic wave equation of a wave with an amplitude of 12 Nm^2, wavelength of 20, velocity of 5 m/s, distance from the source is 5mm, time of 6 sec, initial phase of 10 degrees.**

y(x,t) = 12 x sin ((2 x 3.14 / 20)(5 x 5 - 6) + 10)

= 3.1251
