# When a wave is passing through a uniform medium and the frequency of this wave increases it wavelength does what?

The wavelength gets longer.

### How does changing the amplitude and frequency of a wave effect its speed?

As long as the medium through which the wave is traveling remains unchanged, the speed of the wave will not change, even if the amplitude and/or the frequency of the wave changes. Since the speed of a wave is a product of its frequency times its wavelength, for a given medium of propagation, when the frequency increases, the wavelength decreases and vice versa.

### Describe how the wavelength of a sound wave changes if the frequency of the wave increases?

Speed = distance / time [m /s] likewise: Speed of wave = wavelength x frequency [m /s] Since sound waves travel at a fixed speed through a medium* a drop in frequency must cause a corresponding increase in wavelength *Not always true. In water of example, lower frequency waves travel faster than higher frequency waves. When this happens the waves are said to be travelling through a dispersive medium.

### How are color and wavelength related?

Each color has a wavelength and frequency associated with it. We're familiar with the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. These colors range from longer wavelength (lower frequency) red up through shorter wavelength (higher frequency) violet. As one moves up through those colors from red to violet, the color is an indication to relative wavelength.

### Is a string vibrating at the fundamental frequency the length of half the wavelength?

This question can't be answered as asked. A string vibrating at its fundamental frequency has nothing to do with the speed of the produced sound through air, or any other medium. Different mediums transmit sound at different speeds. The formula for wavelength is L = S/F, were L is the wavelength, S is the speed through the medium and F is the frequency. Therefore, the wavelength depends on the speed of sound through the medium…

### The speed of sound in water is 1430 meters per second What is the wavelength of a sound with a frequency of 286 Hz traveling through the water?

The formula for speed is velocity= wavelength x frequency If the speed of sound in water is 1430m/s you would replace that as the velocity. 1430= wavelength x frequency Frequency is 286 Hz, therefore you would replace that for the frequency in the equation. 1430= wavelength x 286 Now you would divide 1430 by 236, in order to get the wavelength alone. 1430/286= wavelength. So the wavelength is 5 m

### What characteristic of waves increases as they hit the coastline?

Amplitude. The wavelength decreases accordingly. Waves travelling through deep water - even tsunami waves, can have a surprisingly low amplitude (height) of just a few cms, but a very low frequency and long wavelength. They can travel fast too. But as they come into shallower water the wavelength drops and as a consequence the amplitude rapidly increases, creating the much larger waves we see on the shore itself.

### What is mean by lumped element in electronics?

lumped" means that the dimension of you ckt element is much smaller than the wavelength of the signal passing through it. Therefore, you can treat your ckt element as a lumped unit (against the wavelength), and do not have to worry about wave propagation phenomenon "within" your ckt element. The opposite of "lumped element" is "distributed network." Typically, in low-frequency ckt/network, since the frequency is low, therefore, the wavelength is large (wavelength = propagation speed(usu…

### What is the proportion between frequency and wavelength directly or inversly proportional?

distance between two successive crests or troughs is called one wavelength and at any point the number of succesive crests or troughs passing through a given point in one second is called its frequency Wave speed c = frequency f times wavelength lambda For a wave in air the speed of sound is c = 343 meters per second at 20 degrees Celsius. For a wave in vacuum the speed of light is c =…

### Why wavelenth changes with speed of light?

Wavelength does not change with the speed of light, nor does the speed of light change for different wave lengths. Wavelength x frequency = c (the speed of light) always for any given medium through which it travels. Greater wavelength yields lower frequency, so the speed is always the same. Speed changes as light passes into different media transparent to light, but the change in speed has nothing to do with any change in frequency…

### If a vacuum has a frequency of 1.01000000000000000000 what is the wave length?

Vacuums don't have frequencies. Electromagnetic waves moving through vacuums have frequencies and wavelengths. They also have speed. Regardless of their frequency and wavelength, their speed is always 299,792,458 meters per second. The wavelength of an electromagnetic wave is [ (its speed) divided by (its frequency) ]. If its frequency is 1.01 Hz, then its wavelength is 296,824,215.8 meters (about 184,438 miles).

### Wireless technologies that can transmit through solid objects?

All wireless / radio signals have the capability of passing through solid objects. The problem can best be described as a ratio of the density of the object to the frequency of the signal. A high frequency signal is more likely to bounce off a concrete wall, than, say, a shoji screen. To pass through the most dense objects, you need a signal of the longest wavelength.

### What is the relationship between photon wavelength and photon velocity?

The assumption of the previous answer is wrong. By passing them through the correct medium, the velocity at which protons travel can be reduced. This follows the theory of relativity, which only sets a maximum value for light speed, not a minimum. The equations: E=hv [E-energy [J] | h-Planck's constant [6.6260755 x 10¯34 Joule second] | v-frequency [Hz, sec-1]] and λν=c [λ-wavelength [m] | ν-frequency [Hz, sec-1] | c-speed of light (photon) [m/s]] still hold…

### What is energy that can travel through empty space?

Electromagnetic radiation can travel through "empty" space. Depending on the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation, we call it "radio" or "microwaves" or "heat" or "light" or "UV" or "X-rays" or even "cosmic rays" - it's all different frequencies of EM radiation. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency; in fact, the frequency times the wavelength is the constant "c", the speed of light.

### What equation relates frequency and wavelength and speed of light?

(Frequency) x (Wavelength) = Speed of light. Note carefully that the "speed of light" in the equation above is the speed of light in the medium that the wavelength is measured in. In vacuum it will be the famous constant "c", but when light travels through any sort of material it's speed is slowed and its wavelength shortened by a factor called the refractive index of the medium. Because wavelength and speed are reduced by…
