Problem 9Q

Why can you make water slosh back and forth in a pan only if you shake the pan at a certain frequency?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

When we slosh water we are providing an impulse to water. This creates waves in the water. These waves hit the wall of the pan reflect back and interfere with the incoming waves from the center. The interference can be constructive or destructive. This creates a standing wave pattern. The peaks and troughs depend on the size of the pan.

The frequency of proving impulse either helps constructive interference or the destructive one. So at certain frequency the constructive interference dominates and the water sloshes.
