The speed of a wave doubles as it passes from one medium to the next. How will this affect the frequency of the wave?

1. speed = wavelength*frequency

So, if speed doubles you know nothing about the frequency.

If the wavelength is unchanged, then the frequency doubles.

But, if the wavelength doubles, the frequency remains unchanged.
