How to find 1/s frequency of a wave.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The total number of vibrations or oscillations that occur in the given period of time is known as frequency. This term is also referred to as its wave frequency.

Step 2

Frequency of a wave is inversely proportional to its wavelength. The relation between wavelength and frequency of a wave is given in expression (1), in which λ represents the wavelength of the wave, ν represents the frequency of the wave, and c represents the speed of light.
