# What is the formula for wavelength?

The formula for wavelength λ = v/f

where v is the velocity

f is the frequency of the wave

and λ (lambda) is the symbol for wavelength

Wavelength formulaC=λf or λ=C/f

### What is the formula for finding the wavelength of a wave?

The wavelength of a wave is calculated using the formula: Wavelength = speed of the wave divided by the frequency of the wave. For radio waves and other wireless signals as well as the speed a signal travels along a wire, the speed of the wave is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second (the speed of light).

### What is the wavelength if the frequency of sound equals 880 Hz?

That would also depend on the speed. Note that sound can go at quite different speeds, depending on the medium and the temperature. Use the formula speed (of sound) = frequency x wavelength. Solving for wavelength: wavelength = speed / frequency. If the speed is in meters / second, and the frequency in Hertz, then the wavelength will be in meters.

### What is the formula that links frequency to wavelength?

The formula that links frequency to wavelength is v = f * lambda, where v is speed with units of meters per second (m/s), f is frequency with units of hertz (Hz or 1/s), and lambda is the wavelength with units of meters (m). Given frequency and speed, one can easily find the wavelength by solving the given equation to get lambda = v / f. Conversely, if given wavelength and speed, one can easily…
