Dispersion of capillary-gravity waves: A derivation based on conservation of energy
European Journal of Physics
Waves on fluids provide an excellent context for introducing some important topics in fluid dynamics. In this paper we first discuss the behaviour of standing surface waves and present their special properties. Next the dispersion relation of surface waves is derived in a novel way by applying the conservation of energy to the case of standing waves.
