Refraction of waves at plane boundaries

Refraction of waves at plane boundaries When straight waves pass from deep to shallow water, their wavelength becomes shorter. Both the long and the short waves, however, appear at rest when viewed simultaneously through the stroboscope. This shows that, although the wavelength }, has altered, the frequency, f, has remained the same. Now, since the velocity, v = …
