### Does wavelength measure depth distance energy speed volume or time?

Wavelength is a measure of depth/distance - namely the distance
between peaks or troughs in a wave. For light this is referring to
peaks/troughs of signal strength. Because the front velocity of a
photon of light is always constant (ALWAYS, WITH RESPECT TO ALL
FRAMES OF REFERENCE IN THE UNIVERSE, NO EXCEPTIONS), the wavelength
of a photon is also a direct measure of it's energy.

### What is the definition of depth constancy?

depth constancy is the ability to percieve an object as having
the same amount of depth regardless of the distance at which it is
presented. depth constancy is the ability to percieve an object as
having the same amount of depth regardless of the distance at which
it is presented. depth constancy is the ability to percieve an

### What are the units used when measuring the depth of water?

The units used to measure depth of water include ropes, chains,
and SONAR.
The result of the measurement ... "depth of water" ... is a
length or distance,
and can be described in any unit of length or distance.
Choices include but are not limited to:
-- centimeters
-- meters
-- kilometers
-- inches
-- feet
-- yards
-- miles
-- furlongs
-- leagues
-- fathoms

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Physics

### How do you measure amplitude and wavelength?

The wavelength is the distance from one peak (or trough) of the
wave to the next peak (or trough). The amplitude is the distance
from the mean value to the top of the peak (or the bottom of the
trough). Alternatively, the amplitude is one half of the distance
between the height of peak to the depth of the trough.
How you measure these depends on the nature of the waves.

### What is the Best way to measure the depth of a lake?

in gallons or liters
* Depth is distance so you would measure it in metres or
feet.
How to measure it? Use a piece of thin rope with a weight on it.
Drop the weight over the side of a boat where you think the lake is
the deepest. Mark the rope with a waterproof marking pen. Do this
in several places. Then go back to dry land and measure the length
of the rope that was in the water.
