If wavelength is doubled and frequency is kept constant, how does this affect velocity of the wave?

    wavelength* frequency = v \[w _{0} * f_{0} = v_{0}\] \[2(w_{0}) * f_{0} = 2v_{0}\]

    velocity also gets doubled then

    velocity is directly proportional to the wavelength

    wavelength * freq = speed of wave. So if wavelength increases 2X and freq is constrant, then speed increases by 2X.

    v=f*waelength... so it gets doubled.
