## Top best answers to the question «How to figure out the speed of a wave»

The speed of a wave can be found using the equation v=λf, or **velocity = wavelength x frequency**. If an ocean wave has a frequency of 2 hertz and a speed of 4 meters per second, what is its wavelength? Speed = Wavelength x Wave Frequency.
