FAQ

Those who are looking for an answer to the question «What is the distance between two crest of a wave?» often ask the following questions:

### 👋 What is the horizontal distance between wave crest?

That's the 'wavelength'.

### 👋 What is the distance from wave crest to wave crest?

The name for this distance is called the sine.

### 👋 What is the name of the distance between wave crest?

The wave's wavelength is the name is the distance between wave crest.

The wave length.

We've handpicked 21 related questions for you, similar to «What is the distance between two crest of a wave?» so you can surely find the answer!

How do you calculate wave crest distance?
1. Wavelength = λ = Length between wave crests (or troughs)
2. Wave Number = κ = 2π/λ (units of 1/length)
3. Wave Period = T = Time it takes a wave crest to travel one.
4. Angular Frequency = ω = 2π/T (units of 1/time)
5. Wave Speed = C = ω/κ Distance a wave crest travels per unit.
6. Wave Height = 2a = Twice the wave amplitude.
The distance between one wave crest and another is known as the?

wavelength.

What is the distance from crest to crest in a sound wave called?

wavelength

The distance between one crest or peak of a sound wave and the next crest or peak?

Wavelength

What is the distance between one crest and the next in a wave called?

Wave length

What is the distance between one peak or crest of a wave of light?

wavelength

What is the vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave called?

The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave is called the peak-to-peak amplitude. Half of that distance is called the wave's peak amplitude.

The distance from one wave crest to the next wave crest is called the?

wavelengthWAVELENGTH

Distance between wave crests?

wavelength

What is the distance from one crest of a wave to the next crest?

it is called the wave length

The distance between the crest of one wave and the crest of a following wave is called its 'length' or 'period'?

In physics the distance is called wavelength. Period is the time it takes for one wavelength of wave to pass through a given point.

What is the distance between a crest and the next trough in a periodic wave?

The distance here could be the vertical distance between the crest and the trough. The distance between either a crest or a trough and the midpoint of the wave is the amplitude (or peak amplitude), and the vertical distance between the crest and trough is the peak to peak amplitude. The horizontal distance between two crests or two troughs is the wavelength of the wave, so the horizontal crest to trough distance is half a wavelength.

What is the vertical distance between a crest and a trough of a wave called?

The vertical distance between a crest and trough is the peak to peak amplitude of a wave. In comparison, the vertical distance from a midpoint to a crest or a trough is called the peak amplitude.

What part of the wave is half the distance between the crest and the trough?

the point of inflection will appear half the distance between the peak and trough of a sinsoidal wave.

What is the distance from the crest of one wave to the crest of another wave called?

Holly

What is the distance from the crest of one wave to the crest on the next wave?

That distance is called the wavelength.

What is the distance between a wave's mid-point and crest?

Wavelength

What is the vertical distance between a wave's crest and trough?

The amplitude is the distance between the the zero position and the crest or the zero position and the trough so the vertical distance means double the amplitude.

Distance from the crest of one wave to the crest of the next?

That is the same as the wavelength, or the definition of a wavelength.

The distance from one wave crest to the next crest is called the?

This distance is called the wavelength.

Half the distance between the crest and trough of a wave is called the?

That's called the peak amplitude. Compare this to the whole of the distance between the crest and trough, which is called the peak-to-peak amplitude.
