1) a longitudinal wave with a frequency of 3 Hz takes 1.7s to travel the length of a 2.5m slinky. Determine the wavelength of the wave?

2)One tsunami had a wavelength of 750km and traveled a distance of 3700 km in 5.3 hours.

a) what was the speed of the wave. For reference the speed of a 747 jetliner is about 350 m/s.

B) find the frequency

C)find the period

3)A person lying on an air mattress in the ocean rises and falls through 1 complete cycle every five seconds. The crests of the wave causing the motion are 20m apart. Determine

a)frequency

b)speed of the wave

4)the rightmost key on a piano produces a sound wave that has a frequency of 4187.6Hz. assuming that the speed of sound is 343 find the wavelength

5)a jet skier is moving at 8.4 ms in the direction in which the waves on a lake are moving. each time he passes over a crest, he feels a bump. the bumping frequency is 1.2 Hz and the crests are separated by 5.8m. What is the wave speed

6)the speed of a transverse wave on a string is 450 and the wavelength is .18. the amplitude of the wave is 2mm. how much time is required for a particle of the string to move through a total distance of 1 km?
