Formula

Wavelength:
W = V/F

Wave Frequency:
F = V/W

Wave Velocity:
V = F*W

Where,
W = Wavelength,
F = Wave Frequency,
V = Wave Velocity.

Wavelength is a property of a wave that is the distance between identical points between two successive waves. The distance between one crest (or trough) of one wave and the next is the wavelength of the wave. Sound is a mechanical wave that is an oscillation of pressure transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas, composed of frequencies within the range of hearing and of a level sufficiently strong to be heard, or the sensation stimulated in organs of hearing by such vibrations

The wavelength of light determines its color and the wavelength of sound determines the pitch. Sound is a series of waves of pressure that transmit through compressible media such as air or water. Sound can propagate through solids also, but there are additional modes of propagation.

Example:
Calculate the Wavelength for the given details.
Wave Frequency (F) = 25 W/m2
Wave Velocity (V) = 20 m

Solution:
Apply Formula:
W = V/F
W = 25/20
W = 0.8
Wavelength (W) = 0.8 W
