A wave on the surface of the ocean with wavelength44 m is traveling east at a speed of 18 m/s relative to theocean floor. If, on this stretch of ocean surface, a powerboatis moving at 15 m/s (relative to the ocean floor), how oftendoes the boat encounter a wave crest, if the boat is traveling(a) west, and (b) east?
A wave on the surface of the ocean with wavelength44 m is
