Top best answers to the question «Which describes the frequency for a wave»
Frequency describes the number of waves that pass a fixed place in a given amount of time. So if the time it takes for a wave to pass is is 1/2 second, the frequency is 2 per second. If it takes 1/100 of an hour, the frequency is 100 per hour.
- The formula vw=f⋅λ describes the relationship between the speed of a wave (vw), and its frequency (f) and wavelength (λ). For example, if a wave has a frequency of 120 Hz and a wavelength of 5m, it would have a speed of 600

"Frequency" means how 'frequent' the wave is. How many wave 'bumps' pass you every second.
