Frequency = (wave speed) divided by (wavelength)

Wavelength = (wave speed) divided by (frequency)

Wave speed = (frequency) multiplied by (wavelength)

### What is the frequencey of a wave with the speed of 10 and wavelength 20?

Frequency = (speed)/(wavelength) = 10/20 = 1/2

### What happens to the wavelenght of a wave when the frequencey of the wave doubled but speed stays same?

Speed = wavelength x frequency, so wavelength = speed / frequency. Therefore, the wavelength is inversely proportional to the frequency. Double the frequency means half the wavelength.

### Which has a lower frequencey a x ray or visable light?

Visible light has lower frequency / longer wavelength than x-rays.

### How do wavelength and periods relate?

Wavelength*Frequency = Velocity of the wave. or Wavelength/Period = Velocity of the wave.

### Hoe are frequency and wavelength are relate?

Inversely frequency = speed of light / wavelength

### How does wave speed relate to wavelength and period?

Wave speed = (wavelength)/(period)

### How does a waves speed relate to its wavelength and frequency?

The product of (wavelength) times (frequency) is the speed.

### How does speed of wave relate to wavelength and frequency?

The product of (wavelength x frequency) is the wave's speed.

### Who does the speed of a wave relate to its wavelength and frequency?

The speed of any wave is the product of (wavelength) x (frequency) .

### How does energy relate to?

Energy is inversely proportional to wavelength: the shorter the wavelength (X-rays, gamma rays) the greater the energy.

### How do you relate characteristics of light such as colour and intensity to frequency and wavelength?

The only reasonable way to relate a frequency or wavelength (the two are related by a very simple equation, so they're effectively the same information) to a color is by looking at a table or chart; there's no mathematical equation that you can put a number in and get out "red" as the answer. Intensity has nothing to do with color, frequency, or wavelength, so there's no way to relate it to any of those properties.
