Homework Help: Finding Period (T) from time (t)

  1. Feb 6, 2006 #1
    How do i do this!! I have a long problem with several question parts about waves and I know how to do all of it except the first question is asking me to find velocity which I need frequency for, which I need Period for! Anyone please help Period and time have been a stumper for me all year please help me set this straight and understand it, thanks anyone.

    Your question is too vague. Please post the actual problem (or perhaps just the first part of it), so we can see exactly what you need help with.

    alright well its a basic wave, with an amplitude of .03 m and a lambda of .08 m. It's asking for the speed when the time for ONE wave (it says point a to reach point f, they are two crests which are in phase) is 2 seconds.
