The wavelength would increase by the same proportion.

wavelength = (wave speed) / (frequency) frequency = (wave speed) / (wavelength) Wave speed = (wavelength) x (frequency)

The freequency of a wave is increased when the wavelength is decreased. This is because the product of the frequency and the wavelength are a constant that determines the speed of the wave c=fw.

The universal wave equation states that v = fλ, therefore wavelength is directly related to the speed of the wave. That means that if the frequency is increased, the speed is also increased and vice versa, as long as frequency is kept constant.

Frequency = (wave speed) divided by (wavelength)Wavelength = (wave speed) divided by (frequency)Wave speed = (frequency) multiplied by (wavelength)

i

Wave speed = (wavelength)/(period)

Wavelength = wave speed/frequency Frequency = wave speed/wavelength (Wavelength) x (Frequency) = Wave speed

A wave's speed is equal to its wavelength times its frequency.

Wavelength, wave speed is determined by the medium.

(frequency) multiplied by (wavelength) = (wave speed)

As the frequency goes up, the wavelength decreases. Their product is always the same number . . . the wave's speed.
