    Is it an electromagnetic wave or mechanical wave?

    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.
