Problem: The figure is a history graph at x=0m of a wave moving to the right at 2m/s.(a) What is the frequency of this wave?(In Hz)(b) What is the wavelength of this wave?

FREE Expert Solution

Velocity, frequency, and wavelength relation:

v=fλ

Frequency and periodic time are related as:

f=1T

1s-1 = 1 Hz

(a)

Periodic time is the time from crest to crest.
