The Position, Velocity and Acceleration of a Wavepoint Calculator will calculate the:

- The y-position of a wavepoint at a certain instant for a given horizontal position if amplitude, phase, wavelength and period are known.
- The vertical instantaneous velocity at a certain instant for a given horizontal position if amplitude, phase, wavelength and period are known.
- The vertical instantaneous acceleration at a certain instant for a given horizontal position if amplitude, phase, wavelength and period are known.

Please note that for the purpose of calculations Waves are considered as standing.
