Period and frequency are inverse to each other, as period increases frequency decrease.

Period and frequency are inverse to each other, as period increases frequency decreases. So, to answer this question as the period of the wave decreases its frequency must increase.

no...period of wave is inversely proportional to frequency so when period of wave is increases frequency get decrease.

If the period increases, the frequency decreases.The product of (frequency) times (period) is always ' 1 '.

The frequency and period of a wave are inversely proportional. Therefore, as the frequency increases, the period decreases. frequency = 1/period period = 1/frequency

The frequency is the number of waves within a time period. As the frequency within that time period increases, the number of waves increases, therefore the width of each wave (wavelength) within that time period has to decrease. Therefore:As the wave length increases, the frequency decreasesAs the wave length decreases, the frequency increases

period decreases... Period is inversely proportional to frequency. If period is increased, frequency will decrease.

Period and frequency are inversely related to each other. So as the period increases its frequency decreases

The frequency of a wave decreases when its period increases. The frequency (f) of a wave is the number of cycles (or vibrations or oscillations) per unit time. The SI units of frequency is the inverse seconds or hertz (Hz). The period (T) of a wave is the time it takes to complete a cycle. The frequency and period have the following relationship: frequency= 1/period f= 1/T so if the period increases, the frequency decreases.

Frequency is inversely proportional to the wave length, thus saying the shorter the wave length the higher the frequency and vice versa.The frequency is the number of waves within a time period. As the frequency within that time period increases, the number of waves increases, therefore the width of each wave (wavelength) within that time period has to decrease. Therefore:As the wave length increases, the frequency decreasesAs the wave length decreases, the frequency increases

The period and frequency of a wave are inversely related, i.e. the period is the time it takes for wave to go through a cycle, and the frequency is the number of cycles in a certain time period. For example, a wave with a period of 0.5 seconds would have a frequency of 2 per second. Since these properties are the inverse of each other, than they will be opposite when changing. If the period decreases (i.e. gets shorter, faster) than the frequency increases. Or vice versa.

Time period = 1 / frequency. Frequency = 1 / time period.When the frequency decreases, the period must increase.

The wavelength will increase if the period increases.Proof:First define the terms: Wavelength = Lamda (&lambda;), Velocity of propagation = v, frequency = f, period of oscillation = T. Frequency asks "how many waves per unit time (seconds usually)".Period asks "How much time (seconds) does it take for one wave cycle to complete".Also, frequency is inversely proportional to period, so f = 1/T. Also, T = 1/f.(Incidentally, note that as period (T) increases, then frequency (f) gets decreases. Or if frequency increases, then period decreases.)&lambda; = v/for&lambda; = vT. (by replacing f with 1/T)If the frequency decreases, OR/AND the velocity increases, then wavelength corespondingly increases.If the period increases OR/AND the velocity increases, then the wavelength increases.

Frequency is the inverse of wave period. That is, frequency*period = 1

The wavelength decreases as the frequency increases.

As frequency increasese the period decreases since they are inversely related to each other with the relationship f = 1/T.

When a wave period decreases, speed increases.
