1.)A rock at the blank of a coast is struck by water waves.find the frequency of the waves striking the rock,if the distance between two consecutive crests or troughs is 100m.velocity of water wave is 150m/sec.

2.)the timeperiod of a vibrating body is 0.1sec.the waves produced by the body moves with a speed of 330m/s.find the wavelength of the wave.

  • physics -

    λ = v /f ,
    1) f= v/λ =150/100 = 1.5 Hz

    2) λ = v•T =330•0.1 = 33 m

  • physics -

    λ = v /f .
    1) f= v/λ =150/100 = 1.5 Hz

    2) λ = v•T =330•0.1 = 33 m
