The equation \(y(x,t) = 0.005 ~cos (\alpha x- \beta t)\) describes a wave traveling along the x-axis. If the wavelength and the time period of the wave are 0.08 m and 2.0 s, respectively, then $\mathrm{\alpha}$ and $\mathrm{\beta}$ in appropriate units are:

1. $\mathrm{\alpha}=25.00$ $\mathrm{\pi},$ $\mathrm{\beta}=\mathrm{\pi}$

2. $\mathrm{\alpha}=\frac{0.08}{\mathrm{\pi}},$ $\mathrm{\beta}=\frac{2.0}{\mathrm{\pi}}$

3. $\mathrm{\alpha}=\frac{0.04}{\mathrm{\pi}},$ $\mathrm{\beta}=\frac{1.0}{\mathrm{\pi}}$

4. $\mathrm{\alpha}=12.50$ $\mathrm{\pi},$ $\mathrm{\beta}=\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{2.0}$
