Small waves of water in the ocean transfer:

a) energy

b) sonic heat

c) neither energy nor water mass

d) sound waves only

Explanation

A wave transfers momentum and energy. A wave may be mechanical, electromagnetic, or matter.

a) energy, correct, waves transfer energy

b) sonic heat, incorrect, there is no such thing as sonic heat

c) neither energy nor water mass, incorrect, waves do transfer energy but not matter

d) sound waves only, incorrect, while waves crashing on the beach disperse some energy in the form of sound, traveling waves in a fluid mostly carry kinetic energy dependent on mass and velocity
