A string is waved up and down to create a wave pattern with a wavelength of 0.5 m. If the waves are generated with a frequency of 2 Hz, what is the speed of the wave that travels through the string to the other end?

The speed of the wave is __ m/s.

  1. look at the units
    velocity (m/s) = wavelength (m) * frequency (1/s)

  5. you can do x = 2*5, can't you?
    So just plug in your numbers.
