This lesson covers the concept of the one-dimensional wave equation, its derivation, and its solutions. It explains how the equation is derived based on Newton's Second Law and Hamilton's principle. The lesson also introduces the concept of wave velocity and how it is determined by the tension in the string and its linear mass density. It further discusses the general solution of the wave equation, providing examples of wave propagation in terms of initial conditions. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the energy of waves and the concept of mechanical impedance.
