The Wave Speed Equation
This important equation lets us find out how fast a wave is travelling, and the relationship between frequency and wavelength.
The Wave Speed Equation: Example A
You don't have to remember what a nanometre is, but the conversion factor is given in this question.
The Wave Speed Equation: Example B
In solids and liquids the particles are closer together so pass on their vibrations faster.
