# Understanding velocity=wavelength*frequency

I am trying to understand the v=f*lambda equation.
I understand that the speed of soundwave is the same throughout the medium.
But lets say I have some kind of source that emits sound waves. If i increase the frequency, will the wavelength automatically decrease as the product of frequency x wavelength is a constant in the medium?

Yes, it will. The wavelength is shorter for higher frequencies.
