In a ripple tank experiment, students generate water waves at a speed of 4.0 cm/s and a wavelength of 0.5 cm. If the waves are refracted into shallower water where their speed decreases to 3.0 cm/s, what is their new wavelength?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What would the formula be for this question?
