## Top best answers to the question «What is frequency wavelength period and speed of a wave»

(Wavelength is the distance from crest to crest, which is twice the horizontal distance from crest to nearest trough.) **Period = 0.42 s** (The period is the reciprocal of the frequency. T = 1 / f) Speed = 230 cm/s. (The speed of a wave is calculated as the product of the frequency times the wavelength.)

**Speed = Wavelength x Wave Frequency**. In this equation, wavelength is measured in meters and frequency is measured in hertz (Hz), or number of waves per second. Therefore, wave speed is given in meters per second, which is the SI unit for speed.
