What are the differences between "Typical wave length" and "Wave length" ?
"Typical wave length" does not have any universally accepted meaning so when you see/read the term the speaker/writer is expecting that you'll understand what they mean from the context.

If you can tell us where you came across the phrase we'll be able to tell you what they're trying to say, but without that context we won't be much help.

"A typical wavelength for the AM radio broadcast band in the US is 300 meters" (1MHz is a round number for the location of the AM radio band in the US)

"The wavelength of the AM radio station KCBS in the San Francisco Bay Area in the US is 405 meters" (740kHz on your AM radio "dial")

This word I mean typical length it depends on the flow of fluid in channel..
