A water-skier is moving at a speed of 16.7 m/s. When she skis in the same direction as a traveling wave, she springs upward every 6.9 s because of the wave crests. When she skis in the direction opposite to the direction in which the wave moves, she springs upward every 4.2 s in response to the crests. The speed of the skier is greater than the speed of the wave.
Determine the speed of the wave in m/s and Determine the wavelength of the wave.
