The speed of all ocean waves is controlled by gravity, wavelength, and water depth.
In general, the longer the wavelength, the faster the wave energy will move through the water.
In deep water where the water depth is larger than half the wavelength, the wave energy flux is.
Most characteristics of ocean waves depend on the relationship between their wavelength and water depth.
The period of the carrier frequency multiplied by the speed of light gives the wavelength, which is about 0.
Tsunami waves do not resemble normal undersea currents or sea waves, because their wavelength is far longer.
These dunes most often form as a continuous 'train' of dunes, showing remarkable similarity in wavelength and height.
If the wavelength is much longer than the size of the target, the target may not be visible because of poor reflection.
In general, larger waves are more powerful but wave power is also determined by wave speed, wavelength, and water density.
Deep water corresponds with a water depth larger than half the wavelength, which is the common situation in the sea and ocean.
For example, the electrons used by Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer in 1927, accelerated by 54 volts, had a wavelength of 0.
Individual waves in deep water break when the wave steepness—the ratio of the wave height H to the wavelength λ—exceeds about 0.
Light and other short wavelength electromagnetic radiation is produced by resonance on an atomic scale, such as electrons in atoms.
To reduce the drag of the antennas the operating wavelength could not be much greater than one m, difficult for the day's electronics.
If the wavelength is much shorter than the target's size, the wave will bounce off in a way similar to the way light is reflected by a mirror.
In shallow water, with the water depth small compared to the wavelength, the individual waves break when their wave height H is larger than 0.
The ray approximation of classical mechanics breaks down when the de Broglie wavelength is not much smaller than other dimensions of the system.
At this medium wavelength, long distance transmission in the daytime is not possible because of heavy absorption of the skywave in the ionosphere.
In that year the prototype metre was replaced by a formal definition which defines the metre in terms of the wavelength of specified light spectra.
Half wavelength long wires or strips of conducting material, such as chaff, are very reflective but do not direct the scattered energy back toward the source.
