A branch from the tree falls into some shallow water in a pond nearby The branch sets up a wave. The wave moves to the left a distance of 3.0 m

before hitting the side of a moored boat and reflecting back again.

                  The wave takes 5.0 s to travel from AB to the boat. Calculate the speed of

            the water-wave.

Expert Answer:

If the wave has travelled 3m in 5 seconds, then speed of wave is 3/5 = 0.6 m/s
 
speed = distance/time
