#### 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 ...

#### Solution Summary

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