Not what you're looking for?

Water waves in a lake travel 4.4 m in 1.8s. The period of oscillation is 1.2 s.

a. What is the speed of water waves?
b. What is their wavelength?

##### Solution Summary

This job figures the speed and wavelength of water waves given distance, time and period of oscillation.

##### Solution Preview

Distance traveled by the wave (D) = 4.4m
Time taken by the wave to travel 4.4m (T) = 1.8s
Period of oscillation of the wave (t) = 1.2s

a) Velocity is defined as the ratio of distance traveled over time taken ...
