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

Steps for Sound Wavelength Calculator

Step 1 :

Identify the given parameters after reading the problem carefully.

Step 2 :

Substitute these vales in the given equation to find out the wavelength of a sound wave.

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

Examples on Sound Wavelength Calculator

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

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
