## Introduction to Energy and Power of Waves

Do you know any example of waves carrying energy?

Have you ever heard of seismic waves? What do they cause?

Why it is not good to stay for long periods exposed to direct sunlight? Can you explain your opinion in terms of electromagnetic waves?

How do water waves chew up beaches?

How does loud sound damage the hearing?

All the above examples involve energy (and therefore power) of various kinds of waves which we will discuss in this tutorial. Also, the mathematical procedure to obtain the equations of waves energy and power will be explained.
