1. Why do deep water waves sometimes break instead of just getting bigger?

Water "particles" move in a circular pattern in deep water, with the "axis" parallel to the direction of motion of the wave and the circle is vertical (like a bicycle tire in motion). As the wave ...

3. Are tides considered deep -water waves anywhere in the ocean? Why or why not?

I do not think so, but it depends on what the definition of deep water waves would be. The tides are effectively a giant wave with a period...

4. What happens when a deep -water wave strikes the bottom of the ocean?

A Deep -Water wave action or reaction would vary according to the surface at the bottom of the deep . Sand, sediment, rock, and other surfaces absorb or repel energy differently.

9. Describe how a wave changes as it moves from deep water toward the shore.?

Waves in deep water move in circles but as it approaches the shore the wave shortens and "breaks." It becomes steeper and begins to curl over before it crashes on the shore
