 Sci Advisor HW Helper PF Gold P: 2,606 The expected relationship between the frequency and wavelength is one of inverse proportion $$\lambda = \frac{v_s}{f}.$$ The speed of sound $$v_s$$ could be computed from the slope of a fit to the data where you plot $$\lambda$$ vs. $$1/f$$, instead of $$\lambda$$ vs. $$f$$.
