Question 1 of 7

Circular water waves move outward from a bobbing cork. The cork bobs up and down and back again—a complete cycle—once per second, and generates waves that measure 10 cm from crest to crest. Some time after the wave motion has been established, we begin to time the motion with a stopwatch.

(a) What is the wave frequency f for this water wave?

(b) What is its wavelength λ?

(c) What is its wave speed v?
