# A Cork Floating in a Calm Pond Executes Simple Harmonic Motion of Frequency ν When a Wave Generated by a Boat Passes by It. the Frequency of the Wave is - Physics

MCQ

A cork floating in a calm pond executes simple harmonic motion of frequency
$\nu$ when a wave generated by a boat passes by it. The frequency of the wave is

#### Options

• $\nu$

• $\nu/2$

• $2\nu$

• $\sqrt{2}\nu$

#### Solution

$\nu$ The boat transmits the same wave without any change of frequency to cause the cork to execute SHM with same frequency though amplitude may differ.

Concept: Speed of Wave Motion
Is there an error in this question or solution?
