The wavelength is the equal to the speed divided by the frequency. Hence: λ = v/f

Wavelength x frequency = speed of the wave.

IF a wave moving at a constant speed were to have it's wavelength doubled (Wavelength x 2), then the frequency of the wave would be half of what it originally was (Frequency / 2).

They are related by s=wf, wavelength w and frequency f. The product of the wavelenth andf frquency are a constant. This is an hyperbolic relationship between w and f, when w increases f decrease and vice versa.

No change in frequency or wavelength.

Wavelength=O.34 Meter.

Any wave. Of you have a wave (light, water etc.), it will have a frequency and a wavelength. Multiply these and you get the speed at which the wave is moving.

The speed of a wave is equal to its wavelength times its frequency. Since you are using SI units, the answer will be in meters/second.

Divide the speed by the wavelength.

frequency [Hz] = velocity[m/s] / wavelength [m] frequency [Hz] = 24 [m/s] / 3 [m] frequency = 8 [Hz]
