### 1D Wave EquationEdit

Derivation of the wave equation using string model.

### General form for boundary conditions.Edit

### Wave equation with Dirichlet Homogeneous Boundary conditions.Edit

In the homogeneous problem
with ,

### Finding a solution: u(x,t)Edit

Let

then substitute this into the PDE.

Where is a constant that can be positive, zero or negative. We need to check each case for a solution.

## Wave Equation with nonhomogeneous Dirichlet Boundary ConditionsEdit

In the homogeneous problem

## Wave Equation with resistive dampingEdit

In the homogeneous problem
