    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Water waves in a shallow dish are 6.0cm long At one point, the water oscillates up and down at a rate of 4.8 oscillations per second. What is the speed of the water waves?

    2. Relevant equations
    I am basicaly stuck becuse I dont know how to relate the oscillations to the formula. V=D/T

    3. The attempt at a solution
