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 α and β in appropriate units are:

1. α=25.00 π, β=π

2. α=0.08π, β=2.0π

3. α=0.04π, β=1.0π

4. α=12.50 π, β=π2.0
