## Homework Statement

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.

## Homework Equations

velocity of a wave= Wavelength x Frequency

Velocity of a wave = Wave length/ Period

## 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?**
