The Velocity of a Wave calculator computes the speed of a wave based on the wavelength (λ) and the frequency (f).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Wave Velocity(v): The velocity is returned in meters per second. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The wavelength is simply the distance that a pulse is able to travel before we the next pulse. The distance between pulses is the wavelength (λ), and the frequency of the wave pulses (f). Therefore, theis the distance times the frequency,
