I'm not a scientist but I would say the greater the force, the greater the erosion. A larger wave has more mass, and would exert more force on what it hits. The greater force would have greater potential for knocking particles loose from what it hits - erosion. The speed of the wave would have a similar effect - greater speed equals greater fore and greater erosion.
The major factor should be its speed. The higher its speed, the more force the stream will hit the bank and bed, making the land erode more easily.
the force of air can erode a rock
An object's mass doesn't affect the way it moves. It affectsthe ability of a force to change the object's motion.
The number and force of earthquakes are beyond mankinds ability to control. There is nothing we can do that will affect the frequency of earthquakes.
Force can accelerate an object.
In three ways: by sheer force of impact, by electromagnetic disruption of molecular bonds and by dissolution of minerals. You can't see any of this happening in usual time, but if you visit an area of shoreline after many years, you'll see where it's happened.
A river can erode and construct things, such as canals and canyons. They are strong forces.
They slowly change the shoreline by moving sand.
The Ruby Falls, like all waterfalls, are a destructive force as they slowly erode the rock they flow from.
The ability of string to withstand the tension force is called tensile strength.
