### If the speed of a wave increases and its frequency does not change then what will happen to its wavelength?

This generally happens when a wave moves from one medium into
another.
Now, the velocity (v) of a wave (mechanical and electromagnetic)
is equal to the product of its frequency (f) and wavelength
(ÃŽÂ»).
So, v = f x ÃŽÂ»
That means if frequency is constant, the wavelength is directly
proportional to the velocity.
So, if the speed of the wave increases (while frequency remains
the same), the wavelength will also increase.

### How does the frequency of a wave change as its wavelength changes?

You can see how the frequency of a wave changes as its
wavelength changes by using the formula Velocity= wavelength x
frequency
If for example we are talking about the speed of light (Which
does change) and the wavelength is reduced, then the
frequency has to increase in order to balance out to the speed of
light.
Another way to view it is like this:
The frequency of a wave changes with the wavelength by what
happens to the wavelength. For instance, if the...

###### Asked in Science, Physics

### What will the result be when this happens Velocity of a wave increases and the wavelength stays the same?

This is not true practically. Theoretically speaking as velocity
increases with wavelength remains constant, then frequency has to
increase accordingly. Since the formula for velocity is given as:
velocity of the wave v = frequency (nu) * wavelength (lamda).
In reality the characteristic, namely, frequency remains
constant when the speed of the wave changes as it traverses in
different medium.

### What happens to the wavelength of a wave that slows down while retaining its original frequency?

As the basic formula of all types of waves is (Velocity of a
wave=the product of the wavelength of it and its frequency). In
this case, frequency of a certain wave is constant and the velocity
is decreasing. And as the velocity is directly proportional to the
wavelength, the wavelength of the wave shortens as a result.

### What happens to the velocity when wavelength increases?

Wavelength(L), frequency(F), and velocity(v) are bound by the
equation v=LF.
Therefore if the frequency remains constant and the wavelength
increases then the velocity also has to increase.
If we are talking about light waves; however. the velocity is
always c, the speed of light. So if wave length increase then the
frequency has to decrease.

### What happens to the wavelength when you increase the frequency?

The wavelength decreases as the frequency increases. From the
universal wave equation velocity = wavelength * frequency, it can
be derived that wavelength = velocity / frequency, and therefore
wavelength is inversely related to frequency. For inverse
relationships, when one variable increases, the other
decreases.
