The Physics of Ocean Waves

The earth's surface, as many people know is covered mainly in water (specifically 75% of the earth's surface). And throughout all of the oceans, seas and lakes there are waves. These waves follow the equation that all waves do, that v=fλ, which means that the wave's velocity is equal to it's frequency (which is the number of waves that pass a fixed place in a given amount of time) times the wavelength. Also, ocean waves have distinct parts. For instance, the wave crest is the highest part of the wave which is above average water level.
