Motion of the Ocean

In the summer, my favorite place to be is the beach. Physics can be found everywhere, especially in the water. No matter where a person goes, you can almost always find physics around you.

Every wave has a medium and in this case, the medium is the water. A medium is a substance or material that carries the wave. As a disturbance moves through a medium from one particle to its adjacent particle, energy is being transported from one end of the medium to the other. In every wave there is an amplitude and depending on how big the amplitude is, decides how big the wave is. The higher the amplitude, the higher the wave. Waves are a symbol of physics because of all the different types of waves there are and how many different places you can see waves.

One thing that makes me wonder is how noise can effect a wave.
