Wavelength = 1/frequency. If you double the frequency, the wavelength drops to half.

Assuming that the wavelength remains constant, the velocity of the rope will also double if the frequency is doubled. This can be seen in the word equation below: speed = frequency x wavelength If we assume that wavelength is a constant...let wavelength = 1 speed = frequency therefore... 2 x frequency = 2 x speed

speed of wave = frequency * wavelength if frequency is doubled wavelength must be halved 8=4*2 8=8*1

wavelength = speed of light/frequency so as the frequency decreases, the wavelength increases.

the wavelength of the wave get smaller, decreases because the frequency is doubled, increasing..vise versa.

The wavelength is halved.

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

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).

speed = freq. X wavelength Hence frequency and wavelength are inversely related when the speed is same. So if the frequency is doubled, then wavelength becomes half of the initial length.

Speed = wavelength x frequency, so wavelength = speed / frequency. Therefore, the wavelength is inversely proportional to the frequency. Double the frequency means half the wavelength.

Wavelength is halved.

frequency is also doubled
