How do Waves Move

How Do Waves Move? (How Does it Move? Forces and Motion) by Avery Elizabeth Hurt

How Do Waves Move? explores what ocean waves are and how they move. Young readers will be delighted to learn that waves are the result of energy moving through water, not of the water itself moving across long distances. This highly visual volume traces the discovery of wave theory and explains the principles of friction and inertia, using examples kids can relate to and practical exercises that demonstrate how waves are formed.
