please help!!! measuring the velocity of sound by an air column
hello, I'm new here and in desperate need of help.
I conducted an experiment to measure the velocity of sound by an air column.
The experiment didn't go very well. It was difficult for me to depict the change of sound. Anyway I have to prove the formula velocity=frequency x wavelength using my data. However due to difficulty with the experiment my results I believe are inaccurate. My question is ...is the frequency supposed to be directly proportional to the wavelength????? Meaning when the frequency increases should the wavelength also increase??? Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

Frequency and wavelength are inversely proportional. When the wavelength goes up, the frequency goes down.
