If a wave has a low frequency how do you describe the wave length?

The frequency of a wave is not directly related to the wave length. A low frequency wave or a high frequency wave may be either long-wave or short-wave.

Describe how the frequency of a wave changes as the wavelength changes?

Speed (of the wave) = frequency x wavelength. Assuming the speed of the wave doesn't change, if the wavelength increases then the frequency decreases.

What is the number of times something happens in a given amount of time?

The word to describe the number of times a particular event occurs in a specific time is frequency. For example, "Describe the frequency of these pains over the last day or two." Curiously, we are only able to measure time at all because there are some events which we believe to have a frequency which changes only minimally, and so the frequency of other events can be compared to them.

Describe how the frequency of a wave changes as its wave length changes?

Increasing the wave length means a decreased frequency. Frequency and wavelength vary inversely with each other, which is to say, as frequency increases wavelength decreases, and vice versa. In formulaic form, v = (lamba) * f... velocity = wavelength times frequency.

What is the word that describes frequency of a sound?

Pitch is the word used to describe the frequency of the sound waves. A higher pitch means a sound of higher frequency and a lower pitch means a frequency of lower pitch. Higher pitched sounds are shriller than lower pitched ones.

A: This is term used to describe a filter that has wide or a big range of frequency available to pass trough. There are others name to describe other ranges of frequency like low pass, hi pass, narrow pass.

Describe something that can affect the pitch of sound?

The pitch of sound depends on the sound's frequency. Frequency is basically the amount of waves the sound is producing. If there are many waves, "happen frequently", it is a high frequency. This is a high pitch. If the distance between the waves is large, it is a low frequency and a low pitch.
