You notice that a wave crest passes by the duck every 4 seconds, and the duck is moving up and down a maximum distance of 6 cm. Waves are moving at a velocity of 0.2 m/s. Water waves are modeled by the ‘wave equation’ we have discussed in the Lecture/DLs. Write the wave equation for these waves. The general wave equation is: 2 2 y( , ) Asin( ) t x x t T = ± + .
