Sound Wavelength Calculator
Top
Sound wavelength calculator helps to find out the wavelength of a sound wave which is moving with a velocity. It is an online tool for easy calculation. Wavelength is nothing but the distance between two consecutive points which is having same phase. The mathematical representation of the wavelength formula is given below:

$\lambda$ =$\frac{v}{f}$

Where $\lambda$ is the wavelength
           v is the velocity of the sound wave
           f is the frequency of the wave

  1. The velocity of a sound wave is 340m/s and the frequency is 500Hz. Calculate the wavelength of this sound wave?


    Step 1 :  

    Given quantities are,


    v=340m/s


    f=500Hz


    $\lambda$=?



    Step 2 :  

    The equation to find out the wavelength is,


    $\lambda$ =$\frac{v}{f}$


    $\lambda$ =$\frac{340}{500}$


    $\lambda$ =0.68m





    Answer  :  

    Wavelength of the given sound wave is,

     

    $\lambda$ =0.68m



  2. Determine the frequency of the sound wave provided the velocity is 340m/s and wavelength is 0.25m?


    Step 1 :  

    Given quantities are,


    v=340m/s


    f=?


    $\lambda$=0.25m



    Step 2 :  

    The equation to find out the wavelength is,


    $\lambda$ =$\frac{v}{f}$


    We have to calculate the frequency. so,


    f=$\frac{v}{\lambda}$


    f=$\frac{340}{0.25}$


    f=1360Hz





    Answer  :  

    The frequency of given sound wave is,

     

    f=1360Hz
