Answer ALL questions.1
A shallow tray holds water. The depth
of the water is about 2 cm.(a) (i) escribe how you would measure
to a precision of 1 mm.

(b) ne side of the tray is lifted up 2 cm and dropped. This causes a wave to cross thesurface of the water. The wave is reflected from side to side across the surface.The wave takes a time
to cross the surface once.escribe how you would determine an accurate value for
