Q10.14    Let us list some of the factors, which could possibly influence the speed of wave propagation:
                    (i) nature of the source.
                    (ii) direction of propagation.
                    (iii) motion of the source and/or observer.
                    (iv) wavelength.
                    (v) intensity of the wave.
                On which of these factors, if any, does
