Relation between frequency (n), time (T) and wavelength (λ)



Time period (T) of a wave is defined as the time taken to produce one complete wave; and frequency (n) of a wave is defined as the number of complete waves produced in unit time Thus, they are related as


                 n=
1
T
o
r
T
=

n

 


In one time period (T), a wave advances by a distance equal to one wavelength. Thus, if 'V' is the velocity of the given wave, it is given by,


                                 

v=
λ
T
.Asn

  We may write v = nλ


Thus, velocity of wave propagation = frequency × wavelength.
