Question #58775

what's the difference between frequency and wavelength?

Expert's answer

Wavelength represents the distance between the points of the wave, which oscillate in phase. Wavelength is equal to the distance covered by a moving wave during one period.

Frequency represents the number of oscillations during a timespan, or the number of waves passing by specific point during a timespan. Value of frequency is inverse to the period.
