**Universal Wave Equation**

2
Wave Speed We can use what we know to determine how fast a wave is moving. What is the formula for velocity? velocity = distance / time What distance do we know about a wave wavelength and what time do we know period

3
**Wave Speed so if we plug these in we get velocity = length of pulse /**

time for pulse to move pass a fixed point v = / T we will use the symbol to represent wavelength

4
**Wave Speed v = / T but what does T equal so we can also write**

T = 1 / f so we can also write v = f velocity = frequency * wavelength This is known as the wave equation. examples
