For a certain transverse wave, the distance between two successive crests is 1.89 m, and 5 crests pass a given point along the direction of travel every 12.84 s. Calculate the wave speed.

  • Physics - ,

    The information you have been given allows you to calculate the frequency and the wavelength. In fact, they have told you what the wavelength is already.

    The period is P = 12.85/5 = 2.57 s and the frequency is 1/P = ___ s^-1.

    The product of wavelength and frequency is the wave speed.

    That should enable you to do the calculation.
