Substituting Values into Equations
Example 1: What is the speed of a water wave with frequency 3Hz and wavelength 2m? Example 2: What is the efficiency of an electric motor if 24J of electrical energy is put inevery second, and 12J of kinetic energy is given out? 
1)
What is the speed of a water wave with frequency 7Hz and wavelength 0.2m?
2)
What is the efficiency of a winch which gives 300J of gravitational potential energy to amass if 500J of chemical energy must be put in to achieve this?
3)
How much energy must be transferred to 0.1kg of water in order to change itstemperature by 5
°
C, if the specific heat capacity of water is 4180 J/kg
°
C?
