Let an object of mass 'm' and volume 'v' be dropped in water from height 'h', and 'a' be the amplitude of the wave generated. What is the relation between 'a' and 'h'. How many waves are generated? What is the relation between relation between the amplitudes of successive waves??

Assume the particle is spherical. What would be the shape of the water that rises creating first wave?

I don't know where begin with or what to begin with ... I'm not looking for full answer either. I'm just looking for what to begin with and where to end.
