Calculating wave height from a ball on a boat
You are sitting on a boat looking at a ball rolling back and forth on a table as the boat rocks. The position of the ball is x(t) = asin(ωt), where a = 1.0 cm and ω = 0.2π/s.
Estimate the size of the waves that are making the boat rock. (This will require you to make some assumptions, state them clearly)
Any answers?
