Wavelength, Frequency, and Wave Speed Problems

Wavelength, λ, is the distance between two identical points on two adjacent waves.

The equation to calculate wavelength is the frequency times the velocity of the wave. It is measured in meters.

The frequency of the waves is the rate at which successive crests pass.
