What effect do waves have on land?
Erosion, and beach building.
The Doppler effect is a phenomenon observed whenever the source of waves is moving with respect to an observer. The Doppler effect can be described as the effect produced by a moving source of waves in which there is an apparent upward shift in frequency for the observer and the source are approaching and an apparent downward shift in frequency when the observer and the source is receding. The Doppler effect can be observed to…
The different types of seismic waves (p waves, s waves, and surface waves) are different because they come at different times. Also the surface wave is only on surface, the p waves can only be on land, and s waves can be in both land and water. Also they create different things like surface waves are the strongest and move the ground.
The Doppler effect affects any wave, including electromagnetic waves. Basically, the idea of the Doppler effect is that the frequency of a wave increases when an object approaches you, and it decreases when it moves away from you. You can imagine that the sound waves, or electromagnetic waves, become compressed when the emitting object moves toward you.
Waves slow down as they approach a shoreline. The first parts of the shoreline that waves meet are the headlands, or pieces of land that project into the water. The slowing waves bend toward the headlands, which concentrates the waves' energy. A huge amount of energy is released when waves crash into headlands, causing the land to erode.
How is the Doppler effect on light waves analogous to the apparent change in pich of a passing train whistle?
earthquakes are caused by the movement of tectonic plates, volcanic eruptions or fault lines. earthquakes have what's called an epicenter, or the point at which it starts. From there, there are a series of three waves that erupt. P, S and surface waves. P waves are twice as fast as s waves and are useful in detecting earth quakes before the third waev arrives. P waves come first, then s, and finally, the surface or…
