    One-dimensional wave equation

    Hi everyone. I could really use a hand with this question:

    Solve the one-dimensional wave equation:
    (∂2u/∂t2) = c2 (∂2u/∂x2)

    Where c is a non-zero constant, subject to the boundary conditions:
    u(0,t) = u(l,t) = 0, _____ t ≥ 0

    And the initial conditions:
    u(x,0) =
    x/5_____________ 0 ≤ x ≤ 1/2
    (1-x)/5__________1/2 ≤ x ≤ 1


    (∂u/∂t)t=0 = 0, 0 ≤ x ≤ 1
    Thank you to anyone who can help. Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    What have you done so far? No one here will give you a solution without an attempt on your part first (see forum rules).
