## Question:

A sound wave of wavelength {eq}0.808 \ m {/eq} and velocity {eq}333 \ m / s {/eq} is produced for {eq}0.616 \ s {/eq}. What is the frequency of the wave?

## Wave Frequency Formula

Different types of energy are carried by waves that propagate through space. These waves are typically described by their respective wavelength {eq}\begin{align*} \lambda \end{align*} {/eq} and frequency {eq}\begin{align*} f \end{align*} {/eq}. Such details allow one to calculate the speed of the wave {eq}\begin{align*} v \end{align*} {/eq} given by the formula

$$\begin{align*} v=\lambda f \end{align*} $$
