# What is the frequency of oceon waves that have a speed of 18 miles per second and wavelength of 50m?

Frequency = (speed) / (wavelength) =

(18 miles per second) x (1,609.344 meters per mile) / (50 meters) =

This speed and frequency is awfully high for a water wave, but the math is the math.

(18 miles per second) x (1,609.344 meters per mile) / (50 meters) =

**579.4 Hz**(rounded)This speed and frequency is awfully high for a water wave, but the math is the math.
