### What is the number of cycles per second in a sound wave?

what is being asked for in this question is "frequency(f)", but in order to answer to answer this question, there is need to know the velocity of this sound wave and its wave length. since there are non of these mentioned in the question, i will give my own values, let the velocity be 330m/s which is the speed of sound in air and let the wave length be 30m. therefore f=velocity/wave length: which gives…

### What is wave velocity and particle velocity?

Wave velocity is a wave property, which may refer to: phase velocity, the velocity at which a wave phase propagates at a certain frequency pulse wave velocity, the velocity at which a pulse travels through a medium, usually applied to arteries as a measure of arterial stiffness group velocity, the propagation velocity for the envelope of wave groups and often of wave energy, different from the phase velocity for dispersive waves signal velocity or information…

### A sound wave that has a higher frequency has a wavelength that is shorter or longer?

The velocity of a sound wave is equal to the wavelength times the frequency, v = Î»f, where v is velocity, Î» (lambda) is wavelength, and f is the frequency. The wavelength and frequency have an inverse relationship, f = v/Î» and Î» = v/f. Therefore, a sound wave that has a higher frequency will have a shorter wavelength, and a sound wave that has a lower frequency will have a longer wavelength.
