1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A longitudinal wave is propagated through a medium. The distance from one max compression to the next is X meters, and its speed is Y m/s. Express the frequency of the waves in terms of x and y. 2. Relevant equations velocity of a wave= Wavelength x Frequency Velocity of a wave = Wave length/ Period 3. The attempt at a solution if x = the distance, then would that mean its the wave length? and if y= speed, that would be the velocity. therefore, if you were to express the frequency would it just be (Rearrange for F) Frequency= Y/X?
