Jane says that the water in an ocean wave at the beach must have traveled a great distance. Jim disagrees, but how can he justify his argument? A. He can measure the wavelength of the incoming waves. B. He can measure the speed of the incoming wave. C. He can note the lack of movement toward the beach of a piece of wood in the water as the wave passes. D. He can note the direction from which the wave comes. ***Not sure!! thanks :)

    A wave which have traveled a short distance had a little content of energy, thta means a little amplitude, so I think it is C

    no, since if a wave starts in the ocean, its energy will decreas as that waves goes to the beach

    it's c the movement is illusory. it is up and down. the water has not travelled far as otherwise it would have dragged the wood and a whole load of other stuff along and onto the beach
