Here, the equation of standing wave is
y=Acoskxsinωt
y=Acoskxsinωt
where
A=1.0mm=0.1cm,k=1.57cm,
ω=78.5s
As travelling waves are of equal amplitudes equal frequencies and moving in opposite directions, their equations can be written as
y1=
1=  A/2  sin(ωt−kx)
y2
2=A/2  sin(ωt+kx)
y=y1+y2 =
A/2  [sin(ωt−kx)+sin(ωt+kx)]
=Acoskxsinωt.
(a) Wave velocity of either wave
υ=
ωk=
78.5s/1.57c
=50cm/s
υ=ωk=78.5s-11.57cm-1=50cm/s
(b) For a node,
y=0,
∴coskx=0,kx=π/2
x=
π/2 whole divided by  k
=3.14/2 whole divided by  1.57
=1cm
(c) For an antinode,
y=max,
for which
|coskx|=1
kx=nπ=π  for smallest value of x
x=
π/k=3.14/1.57=2cm
(d) Teh amplitude of vibration
=|Acoskx|
