Normal surface water waves, as generated by wind, do not have sine form but wave peak is higher and shorter than wave trough with different wave steepness. What parameters characterize such a surface ...
Are all waves in the universe the same as electromagnetic waves? Basically, my question arises from an equation I found in my chemistry textbook: $$\lambda \nu ~=~ c.$$ This states that the ...
I have been fascinated lately by the pattern of the waves created by a waterfall in my town. Specifically, the pattern shows a gradual decrease in the density of the waves as they travel away from ...
I don't think this question has been asked on this forum before (at least I didn't find it). In the case of a tsunami, an earthquake generates a wave which will travel with the sea/ocean as the ...
normally at ocean beaches the waves are normal but they make lot of that a person standing at far can even listen that sound What makes that sound what going to happen a
When we are in beach we can see waves coming when the sun light goes of the waves amplitude will increase what is the reason Some people said me that for moon light the frequency and velocity of ...
I'd like to create a very rough animation of a wave crashing on a beach. I'm guessing it would have to be a particle simulator, where you code in the forces between the particles and then integrate ...
A sign of a tsunami is that the water rushes away from the shore, then comes back to higher levels. It seems that waves should be both + and - polarized and that some tsunamis should go in the ...
I'm convinced that water waves for example: are a combination of longitudinal and transverse. Any references or proofs of this or otherwise?
I don't know hydrodynamics, but I wonder how one would compute resonance modes of a cubic box of water which we shake. I believe the waves would directly depend on the height of water and the width ...
I have had a question since childhood. Why do we always get circular waves (ripples) in water even when we throw irregularly shaped object in it?
