The speed c = 40 meters per second and the frequency f = 120 Hz. The wavelength lambda = c / f. Lambda = 40 / 120 = 0.3333333333 meters.   Wiki User

Since the wave speed equation tells us that the speed of a wave (meters per second)is equal to the wavelength (meters) multiplied by the wave frequency (Hertz), you should be able to calculate your answer by multiplying 12 and 100. Don't forget to include the units that your answer will be measured in!   Wiki User

Wave speed = (wavelength) x (frequency) = (20) x (50) = 1 kilometer per second.

That's the magnitude of the wave's velocity. We can't complete the description

of the velocity because we have no information concerning its direction.   Akbar Ali

velocity 100 meter per second

wavelength 20 m

so formula is V=f*wavelength (lambda)

So

frequency=100/20=5Hz   Lvl 2

To find the frequency of wave, we have a formula

v = f(lambda)

Where,

Lambda = wavelength

f=v/lambda

f = 100 × 10^-3/20

f = 0.005Hz   Thej

velocity = frequency × wavelength

frequency = velocity / wavelength

f= 100 /20

f= 5 Hz   Wiki User

Wavelength = (speed) / (frequency) = 20/4 = 5 meters.   Gary Novosielski
