## anonymous 5 years ago How does increasing the speed of a wave travels affect its wavelength?

anyone????????

what.... http://www.physicsclassroom.com is too general

4. anonymous

i need specific info

5. anonymous

Is it an electromagnetic wave or mechanical wave?

6. anonymous

electromagnetic wave

And now you see why linking to www.physicsclassroom.com is not useful

8. anonymous

why?

9. anonymous

ohhhhhhh

Electromagnetic waves are considered to be traveling at the speed of light for simple analysis, but$\lambda = {v \over f}$From the equation we see a direct correlation between velocity and wavelength. At the same frequency, if we increase velocity, we increase wavelength.

$wavelength = v \div f$?????

yes, lambda $$\lambda$$ is the symbol for wavelength.
