### How do you calculate the waves speed?

Speed = Wavelength X Frequency

### What will be the speed when amplitude and frequency is given?

In order to calculate the speed of a wave, you need to know the frequency and wavelength. Amplitude has no effect on the speed, so knowing the amplitude doesn't help.

### How do you calculate the celerity of a wave if you know the depth and period?

The depth won't help you here. The basic relation here is: speed = frequency x wavelength. If you know two of these pieces of information, you can solve for the third one.

you divide!
