Given the amplitude of a wave and the wabelength how to you find the period?
The problem then goes on and asks me how to find the speed which I know how to do I just don't know how to find the period...
Please show me how to do and the formulas to use thanks for the help

You cannot get the period from the wavelength and amplitude alone. You need to know the speed.
Knowing the amplitude does not help. Speed is independent of amplitude.
