You suddenly realize that these waves are just like all the other waves you have studied in discussion/lab and decide to put your physics skills to the test by writing the wave equation. The pier is supported by large concrete pillars. The pillars have markings on them designed to measure the water height. You see that the highest point the water reaches is a depth of 20 feet and the lowest point is a depth of 16 feet. You also notice that distances are marked along the pier. The concrete pillars are spaced 10 feet apart. You observe one wave crest for 10 seconds and note that it travels past 4 pillars. To make your life easy, you choose to start your measurements of time and position such that the fixed phase constant is 0.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
