(i) (a) All the points vibrate with the same frequency of 60 Hz.

(b) They all have the same phase as it depends upon time.

(c) At different points, the amplitude is different and is equal to A(x) given by

 A(x)=0.06sin(\frac{2\pi }{3}x)

(ii) 

\\A(0.375)=0.06sin(\frac{2\pi }{3}\times 0.375)\\ A(0.375)=0.06\times sin(\frac{\pi }{4})\\ A(0.375)=0.06\times \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\\ A(0.375)=0.042m
