Various external forces influences water movements in an homogenous sea. The topographic equations governing the topographic waves in an homogenous sea have been elaborated in this study. The computational analysis pertinent to delineating the topographic waves in the homogenous sea has been emphasized. The bottom slope and friction factor determines the variation trend of the resultant ocean velocity and the surface ocean depth and generated results for this have been presented in this study. Interestingly, a cubic polynomial fit expression has been made available expressing the relationship between the ocean wave velocity and the ocean depth.
