Speed and wavelength of water waves given distance
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?
Velocity (V) = Distance traveled (D) / Time taken (T)
= 4.4 m / 1.8s = 2.4444 m/s
b) The water wave has the property of periodic motion.
The velocity for a periodic wave is given ...
