A wind wave with a wavelength of 75 meters and a height of 0.8 meters takes 7 seconds to travel past a given point. What is the wave’s steepness and what is its period?

To determine

The steepness and period of a wave when a wind wave with a wavelength of 75 meters and a height

of 0.8 meters takes 7 seconds to travel past a given point.

Explanation

Given info:

Wavelength = 75 metersWaveheight = 0.8 metersTime= 7seconds

The equation used to calculate the steepness of a wave is as follows:

Wavesteepness=Waveheight
