Best Answer

Frequency = Velocity divided by wavelength. So if frequency is doubled that means velocity is doubled but the wavelength is halved.

You can see this by keeping wavelength a constant :

If Frequency =1 and Wavelength= 1

1= Velocity/1

Velocity=1

If Frequency =2 and Wavelength= 1

2= Velocity/1

Velocity =2

OR keeping Velocity constant:

If Frequency =1 and Velocity= 1

1= 1/Wavelength

Wavelength =1

If Frequency =2 and Velocity= 1

2= 1/Wavelength

Wavelength=1/2

When the frequency of a sound wave is doubled then?

The wavelength of the sound waves halves, but the speed remains the same.


What happens to the wavelength of a wave when the frequency of the waves doubled but the wave speed stays the same?

Nothing happens


As the frequency of sound waves increases the wavelength of the sound waves decreases?

The longer the wavelength the lower the frequency. If there is a high frequency it will have a short wavelength


If the frequency of the waves produced by a vibrating object increases how does the wavelength of the waves produced change?

The wavelength decreases. Frequency and wavelength are inversely related.


How wavelength of waves traveling with the same speed would change if the frequency of waves increase?

The speed of a wave is equal to the wavelength divided by the frequency (speed = wavelength/frequency). So if the frequency of the wave increases, the wavelength will decrease.


How wavelength of waves traveling with the same speed would change if the frequency of the Waves increases?

The speed of a wave is equal to the wavelength divided by the frequency (speed = wavelength/frequency). So if the frequency of the wave increases, the wavelength will decrease.

How does the wavelength and frequency of radio waves compare to the wavelength and frequency of visible light?

Radio waves have much lower frequency / much greater wavelength than visible light has.


How does a waves speed relate to its wavelength and frequency?

The product of (wavelength) times (frequency) is the speed.


What happens to the waves when you increase wavelength?

Remember that wavelength x frequency = speed of the wave.If you increase the wavelength, the frequency will decrease - since the speed of most waves is more or less independent of the frequency or wavelength.
