Rarefraction : It is the region of lower density where particles move away from each other
Wavelength : distance between two consecutive compression or rarefaction is known as wavelength
Compression : The region of higher density or the region where particles comes closer to each other is compression
Here it is given that
So here we know that
[tex]v = 2100(3) = 6300 m/s
As the person drop the stone in the water it creates waves on the surface of water
These waves can move the boat up and down at its own position and it can not displace the boat so it will not move to the shore
When stone is dropped in the water it creates waves. these waves when travel through the water and disturb the boat
Due to this disturbance boat starts moving up and down at its own position and it will not displace from its position.
So by this type of waves it will not move towards the shore
a) Rarefactions are in the green frames, compressions in the purple. Wavelength is a distance between same points of the two corresponding rarefactions/compressions.
b) v=wavelength times frequency=3*2100= 6300 m/s.
c) Bad idea that most likely won't work. Waves on water move only in vertical direction. But maybe a high wave will lift the boat and rescue it.
d) Ah, he needs wants the boat reach the shore, I thought it stuck and the person just wants to make it float. Yes, that's not the best idea, see explanation above
The correct answer is 1.2 m/s
to solve for v we divide both side by 0.5kg
