Ql: Which sound wave will have its crests farther apart from each other - a wave with frequency 100 Hz or a wave with frequency 500 Hz?
Frequency= 1/ periodic time
The Attempt at a Solution
I did it like that:
I just found the periodic time for each wave, substituting in the previous relation. and I ended up with :
first wave (500Hz) => 0.002 s
second wave (100 Hz) => 0.01 s
which means that the second has larger wavelength making it ~slower (if we can say), and the first one with a larger wavelength.
however, I still can't reach the crest (amplitude) using the given information!
is there any relation between the periodic time and the amplitude?
or the wavelength and the amplitude?
thanks in advance
