  1. Write a MATLAB m-file to plot a propagating wave. A wave is a signal which is a function of position x and time t in the form p(x,t) = f(x-ct), where c is the speed of the wave. For this problem, use the following equation for the wave:

    p = exp(-(x-ct)^2)

    Set your axes limits so the wave takes up about 10% of the graph, and have the wave propagate smoothly across the plot. Be sure your plot has a descreptive title, and that the axes are labeled.
