The Velocity of a Wave calculator computes the speed of a wave based on the wavelength (λ) and the period (T).
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 a pulse is able to travel before we make the next pulse. The distance between pulses is λ, and the time between pulses is the period, T, so the speed of the wave is the distance divided by the time. Theis:
