Best Answer

Hz as a unit of measurement is "cycles per second"

100 Hz is then 100 cycles of the oscillation per second.

What is the period of the wave if the frequency is 100 hz?

Period = 1 / frequency = 1/100 = 0.01 second.

If a period of a wave is 0.010 second its frequency is?

Frequency = reciprocal of period = 1 / 0.01 = 100per second = approximately 100 Hertz = roughly 100 cycles

What is the period of a wave with a frequency of 100 Hz and a wavelength of 2.0 m?

Period = 1/ frequency So period = 1/100 = 0.01 second

How fast is a wave moving if its wavelength is 10 meters and its frequency is 100 hertz?

Speed = (wavelength) x (frequency) = (10) x (100) = 1,000 meters per second

If a wave has a frequency of 5.0 waves per second and the distance between the peaks of the wave is 20 cm. What is the speed of the wave?

wave velocity = frequency in Hz x wavelength in meterSo frequency = 5 Hz and wavelength = distance between successive peaks = 20 cm = 20/100 mHence wave velocity = 5 * 20/100 = 1 m/s

The frequency of a wave that travels at a speed of 900 meters per second and a wavelength of 9 meters?

Frequency = (speed) / (wavelength) = 900/9 = 100 Hz.

What is the speed of a wave with a frequency of 100-hz and the wavelenght of 12 meters?

Since the wave speed equation tells us that the speed of a wave (meters per second)is equal to the wavelength (meters) multiplied by the wave frequency (Hertz), you should be able to calculate your answer by multiplying 12 and 100. Don't forget to include the units that your answer will be measured in!

What is the frequency of a wave with velocity of 100 ms and wavelength of 20 m?

The frequency is 15 MHz.

What is meant by frequency of 0.1 khz?

It means that the wave (or Object) in reference is repeating itself with the rate of 100 Cycles (or times) per second.

An object that completes 100 vibrations in 5 seconds has a period of?

It completes 20 vibrations per second, the the period is 1/20 of a second.

Which of the electromagnetic wave types can have a frequency of 100Hz?

If an electromagnetic wave has a frequency of 100 Hz, then its wavelengthin vacuum is almost 1,900 miles, and we would call it a radio wave in the ELF(extremely low frequency) range.

What is the frequency of a wave with velocity of 100 ms and a wavelength of 20 m?

Please use the equation: speed (of the wave) = frequency x wavelength ===================== 5Hz
