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

The product of (wavelength x frequency) is the wave's speed.

The speed of any wave is the product of (wavelength) x (frequency) .

Wavelength relates to speed , since wavelength is the distance between the repeating of a wave , thus speed affects the distance . The faster the smaller the wavelength.Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time.Waves with higher frequencies have shorter wavelengths.

Speed of wave (e.g. m/s) = wavelength (m) x number of waves per second (Hz) So you can figure out any one of speed, wavelength or frequency if you know the other two. Often, you know the speed (e.g. light, 3x10^8 m/s, or sound, 340 m/s).

The product of (wavelength x frequency) is the wave's speed.

The speed of any wave is the product of (wavelength) x (frequency) .

Energy is inversely proportional to wavelength: the shorter the wavelength (X-rays, gamma rays) the greater the energy.

Frequency and wavelength are inversely related. This means that as the frequency of a wave increases, its wavelength decreases, and vice versa. This relationship is described by the formula: speed = frequency x wavelength.

The distance a wave travels in three periods of the source is equal to the wavelength of the wave. This distance can be calculated as the product of the wave's speed and its period, or it can also be determined by multiplying the wavelength by three.

Wave speed is dependent on both wavelength and period. The relationship is described by the formula: wave speed = wavelength / period. As wavelength increases, wave speed also increases. Conversely, as period increases, wave speed decreases.

Period are horizontal rows and groups are columns.

The relationship is described by Kepler's Third Law.

The shorter the wavelength (blue rather than red), the higher the energy.
