How are the wavelength and frequency of a sound wave related to its speed?
The relation between frequency and wavelength of sound wave is given as follows:
Velocity (v) = Wavelength (λ) * Frequency (ν)
v = λ * ν
This means the speed is equal to the product of wavelength and frequency of the sound wave.
This equation is also called the ‘wave equation’ and applicable to all types of wave.
