The Reflection of Water Waves.
What Type of Surfaces Best Reflect Water Waves?
waves are best reflected from hard flat surfaces
as shown in the picture below.
Note that the total length of the line representing the
stays the same where it is being reflected.
The red part of the incident wave plus the blue part of
the reflected wave is the same length as the original line.
After reflection a wave
has the same
speed, frequency and wavelength,
it is only the direction of the wave that has changed.
