Homework Help: Need help with a wavelength problem

  1. Jan 27, 2005 #1
    I'm new to this so can someone help me with this question.

    You observe that 34 crests of a water wave pass you each minute. If the wavelength is 10m, what is the speed of the wave in m/s. :confused:

    speed = frequency * wavelength...

    figure it out your self......
