Unformatted text preview: degrees, how many reflected and refracted rays are generated? (5 points). C) What orientation is the P wavefront relative to the ray? (5 points) D) For a P-wave incident at 30 degrees, what are the angles of refraction and reflection? Include a (neat) sketch diagram (10 points). E) If the frequency of vibration of the incident P-wave is 50 Hz, is the wavelength of the refracted P-wave longer or shorter than the wavelength of the incident P-wave? Why? (5 points) 3) (35 points). An earthquake occurs on the San Andreas Fault in California. Three seismometers at a distance of 80 degrees distance, at the same longitude as the earthquake, detect the resulti...
