What is the frequency of the waves? ____ Hz.

What is their wavelength? _____ m.

What is their speed? _____

Can someone explain how to get these?

**Damon**, Thursday, December 8, 2011 at 10:16pmYou told me the period was 2 s so the frequency is (1/2) Hz

Two complete wavelengths along 3 meter boat

so Lambda = 3/2 = 1.5 meters

speed = distance/time = 1.5/2 = .75 m/s
