given by the equation 002 = gk + Z k3 p (k20) where g = 9.80 mls2 is the acceleration due to gravity, 3/: 0.072 N/m is the surface tension of
water, and p=1,000 kg/m3 is the density of water. a. Write down an expression for the phase velocity vp for surface water waves as a function of g, k, yand p. (I point)
