Suppose a piece of string is drawn taut between two endposts, and let \(\phi(x,t)\) denote the height of the string above the line connecting the endposts at the point \(x\) along the same line at time \(t\). Which of the following differential equations correctly describes the evolution of the string shape over time?

Assumptions

  • The composition of the string is uniform.
