Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As frequency increases, wavelength decreases. velocity=frequency * wavelength so frequency is inversely proportional to wavelength.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This might help: http://img.tfd.com/cde/WAVELEN.GIF It shows wavelength, frequency and amplitude on a graph. If you have 5 oscillations in one second, and those oscillations have a certain wavelength, how would that wavelength change if you had to fit 10 oscillations into one second? Just look at the graph: if you're trying to put more oscillations into a shorter amount of time, the waves need to be shorter so you can fit them all in.
