Comments:
James did a good job on his excercise. His hand writing could be slightly
better, but it's legible enough.
GRADER'S COMMENTS: (1) In part (a) one needs to mention that \phi = 0 on
the boundary.
(2) The exercise asks how to determine the frequencies of vibration if the
eigenvalues are known. (The frequencies are the square roots of the
eigenvalues.) The submitted paper just gives the formula for the
eigenvalues in a rectangle with constant c (which are presumably NOT the
correct eigenvalues for this more general problem).
