## Homework Statement

The distance between 10 consecutive crests of transverse waves is 360mm. A crest covers a distance of 40 mm in 2,5 seconds. Calculate the speed, frequency and wavelength of the waves.

## Homework Equations

Period: The time taken for one complete vibration

Frequency: The number of complete vibrations per second

S = Speed

D = Distance

T = time

Speed = (distance/time) = (wavelength/period)

V = fλ

λ = wavelength

V= velocity

F = frequency = 1/period

period = 1/frequency

## The Attempt at a Solution

f = 40/2,5 = 16

λ = 40 mm = 0,04

v = f * λ

v = 16 * 0,04

= 0,64 m/s

I just want to know if my calculations are correct or I am interchanging the wrong values.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!
