A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the speed of a wave that has a frequency of 250 hertz and a length of 1.3 meters?

The equation to use in this case is:speed (of the wave) = wavelength x frequency If the frequency is in hertz, and the wavelength is in meters, the speed will be in meters/second.

What is the wavelength of a wave with a speed of 30 meters per second and a frequency of 10 hertz?

Wavelength = speed/frequency = 30/10 = 3 meters

If blue light has a frequency of 6.98 10 14 hertz what is the wavelength in nanometers?

Just divide the speed of light (in meters/second) by the frequency (in hertz) - that will give you the wavelength (in meters). You can then convert that to nm.

What is the speed when wavelength equals 27 meters and frequency equals 97 hertz?

Just multiply the wavelength (in meters) with the frequency (in Hertz) to get the speed (in m/s).

If an X-ray has a wavelength of 5 nm what is its frequency?

The formula is speed of light (3x108)=Wavelength in meters times frequency in hertz wavelength really=5x10-9 so frequency=6x1016 Hertz or cycles per second

What is the frequency of visible light with a wavelength of 506 nanometers?

Convert that to meters. Then divide the speed of light (in meters/second) by the wavelength. The answer will be in hertz.

What unit do you get when you multiply hertz by meters?

You get a speed. If the 'Hertz' is the frequency of a particular wave, and the 'meters' is the wavelength of the same wave, then their product is the speed of that wave.

What is the frequency of a wave if the wavelength is 10 meters and period is 5 seconds?

The frequency is 1/5 = 0.2 Hertz. The wavelength is irrelevant in this question.

A wave has speed 20meters per second and frequency 4 hertz what is its wavelength?

Wavelength = (speed) / (frequency) = 20/4 = 5 meters.

What is the velocity of a wave with a frequency of 1000000 hertz and a wavelength of 10000 meters?


What is the speed of a wave if its wavelength is 0.02meters its frequencyis 400hz?

If you multiply the wavelength (in meters) and the frequency (in Hertz), you will get the speed of the wave (in meters per second).

State the SI units used for wavelength period frequency and wave speed?

Wavelength is in meters, the frequency is in hertz. period is in seconds and the wave speed is in meters per second.
