Let an object of mass $m$ and volume $V$ be dropped in water from height $h$, and $a$ be the amplitude of the wave generated. What is the relation between $a$ and $h$. How many waves are generated … ? What is the relation between the amplitudes of successive waves? Does it depend on the shape of the particle? Assume the particle is spherical. What would be the shape of the water that rises creating first wave? …
