The distance between successive crests in a series of water waves is 5.0m; the crests travel 8.6m in 5.0s . Calculate the frequency of a block of wood bobbing up and down in the water

  • physics -

    wavelength = speed * period
    5 = (8.6/5) * period
    period = 25/8.6 = 2.9 seconds
    frequency = 1/period = .344 Hz
