For a certain transverse wave, the distance between two successive maxima is 1.82 meters and eight maxima pass a given point along the direction of travel every 14.2 seconds. Calculate the wave speed.
Answer in units of m/s
speed(m/s) = wavelength(m) * frequency (1/s)
so, speed = 1.82m * 8/14.2s = 1.025m/s
