Description
Deutsch: Das Bild zeigt eine realistische Störung der Wasseroberfläche (durch kurzes Eintauchen eines Stabes) und die Ausbreitung dieser Störung durch Kreiswellen von eingeschränkter Konzentrizität und deren Überlagerungen. Der flache Beleuchtungswinkel gibt dem Wasser ein fast metallisches Aussehen.
English: Surface waves of water: expansion of a disturbance. – It shows a realistic disturbance (caused by shortly dipping a stick into the water) and its expansion forming interfering circles of limited concentricity. The near metallic appearance of the water's surface is due to the small angle of illumination.
Español: Ondas superficiales en el agua: expansión de una perturbación. – Muestra una representación realista de una perturbación (causada por sumergir por un instante un palito en el agua) y su expansión formando círculos concéntricos que interfieren. La apariencia metálica de la superficie del agua se debe al bajo ángulo en la iluminación.
Français : Ondes de surface sur de l'eau : L'expansion d'une perturbation. On observe une perturbation réaliste (due à un bâton) et son expansion sous la forme d'ondes interférentes et grossièrement concentriques. L'aspect quasi métallique de l'eau est dû à une lumière rasante.
हिन्दी: जल में पृष्ठीय तरंगे: विक्षोभ का विस्तार – यह वास्तविक विक्षोभ (यह किसी छड़ को जल में लघु समय के लिए डुबाने के कारण उत्पन्न हुआ) और इसका विस्तार निश्चित समकेन्द्रता के व्यतिकारी वृत्तों के निर्माण को प्रदर्शित करता हैं। जल की धात्विक सतह के निकट प्रदीप्ति में लघु कोण का दृश्य।
Português: Ondas de superfície de Água: A expansão de um distúrbio. É mostrada a perturbação realística (causada por um bastão) e sua expansão formando círculos de interferência aproximadamente concêntricos. A aparência metálica da superfície é resultante do baixo ângulo de iluminação.
