The distance between two successive minima of a transverse wave is 2.76 m. Five crests of the wave pass a given point along the direction of travel every 14.0 s. Find (a) the frequency of the wave and (b) the wave speed.

(a)

To determine

The frequency of the transverse wave.

Explanation

Given info: The distance between two successive minima is 2.76m. Five crests pass a given point along the direction of the wave each 14.0s.

The frequency of an wave is defined as the number of crests (trough) passing through a point per second.

Since five crests pass a given point along the direction of the wave each 14

(b)

To determine

The wave speed of the transverse wave.
