Frequency = (wave speed) divided by (wavelength)Wavelength = (wave speed) divided by (frequency)Wave speed = (frequency) multiplied by (wavelength)

Period = (1) divided by (frequency) = (wavelength) divided by (speed)Frequency = (1) divided by (period) = (speed) divided by (period)Speed = (wavelength) times (frequency) = (wavelength) divided by (period)Wavelength = (speed) divided by (frequency) = (speed) times (period)

Wavelength = (speed of the wave) divided by (frequency)

If frequency is multiplied by three, wavelength is divided by three. Higher frequency, shorter wavelength.

The speed of a wave is equal to the wavelength divided by the frequency (speed = wavelength/frequency). So if the frequency of the wave increases, the wavelength will decrease.

Wavelength = speed divided by frequency. Speed = distance divided by time. Therefore: Wavelength = distance divided by (frequency x time). You therefore need to know the frequency of the wave and the time it takes to travel in unit time.

Wavelength = (speed) divided by (frequency) Frequency = (speed) divided by (wavelength) Speed = (frequency) times (wavelength)

Frequency = (wave speed) divided by (wavelength)Wavelength = (wave speed) divided by (frequency)Wave speed = (frequency) multiplied by (wavelength)

Speed = (frequency) times (wavelength) Frequency = (speed) divided by (wavelength) Wavelength = (speed) divided by (frequency)

Wavelength = (speed of the wave) divided by (frequency)

Frequency = speed divided by wavelength

they are related by the equation velocity=frequency*wavelength

When working with waves ... or even just talking about them ... (frequency) = (speed) divided by (wavelength) (wavelength) = (speed) divided by (frequency) (frequency) times (wavelength) = (speed)

Wavelength = (wave speed) divided by (frequency)

That would be the reciprocal of wavelength.( 1 ) divided by (wavelength) .

If frequency is multiplied by three, wavelength is divided by three. Higher frequency, shorter wavelength.
