Water waves in a shallow dish are 5.0 cm long. At one point, the water moves up and down at a rate of 5.2 oscillations per second.
(a) What is the speed of the water waves?
(b) What is the period of the water waves?

  • physics -

    speed=frequency*wavelength.

    period=1/frequency

  • physics -
