© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.24.5 The wave equation The wave equation The speed of a wave depends on its frequency and its wavelength. They are related. If the wave speed is called v, the frequency f and the wavelength, then: Wave speed metres/second (m/s) = = frequency hertz (Hz) wavelength metres (m) v = f

© Oxford University Press 2011 IP1.24.5 The wave equation Dylan is standing on the end of a pier. He measures the water waves going past him. The wavelength of each wave is 1.3 m. He counts 2 waves every second. Find the wave speed. Wave speed = frequency wavelength v = 2 Hz 1.3 m v = 2 1.3 m/s v = 2.6 m/s
