Homework Help: Water Waves

  1. Mar 14, 2004 #1
    Hey, I need some help with finding information about shallow water waves. Im doing an A-level (i think that college level.. well its just below degree level) experiment compairing the velocity of a wave with its depth, and need some help finding background scientific information.
    Everything i have seen so far as either been thesis material or speed=wavelength x frequency . So if anyone could help me i would be very greatful.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Deimos, goodness knows I can't help you...but I am sure some of the brainy types will. I just wanted to thank you for the weird link, I am sure my son will love it!

    P.S. I remember hearing something about solenils, or solenoids, or something like that, being a wave, like the kind kids make in the bathtub, that is a single, big wave, concerning velocity and depth. Good luck in your class.

    Thanks again,
