Wave amplitude

I have now in some time tried to figure out a way to calculate the peak amplitude of a water wave, after starting the wave motion by dropping an object, with a certain weight from a given height, in the water.

I am not in need of the information, but it would be nice to know.
I will hope that you could help me understand this :-)

I don't know how to do that, but I do not it's not simple....The density, shape, and size
of the object will have to be taken intio account....For example, imagine a long pipe or rod
dropped...if on end,vertical, very different than if horozontal.....or notice the size waves expert divers make...the splash is an indicator of the entry efficiency....
