The following diagram shows the formula for velocity of waves: wave velocity = frequency × wavelength.

How to use a ripple tank to determine the wavelength, frequency and speed of water waves?

How to use a standing wave to measure the wavelength, frequency and wavespeed of waves in a solid? Velocity = frequency × wavelength

v = f × λ
