If I call with \lambda the wavelength of each wave, then we can write: \[\frac{{8\lambda }}{2} = 10\] from which I find \lambda=2.5 meters which is not an option of yours

yes:/ i am not sure...but if i apply that equation, it should be like so? i got 10*2 =20/4=5? would it be 5 m is the solution?:

  • anonymous
Yes 5.0 m is the answer

Did your question change from 8.0 waves to 4.0 waves?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
if the answer is 5 meters then 8 waves are long 5*8 = 40 meters, and 40/2 = 20 m/second

ooh okay! and so whenever we get these kinds of problems, we use that equation? oh yes, i put 8 earlier by accident, but i changed it to 4 :/ did it not go through on your side? :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I noticed it changed so the answer is 5.0 m
anonymous
  • anonymous
it shows as 4.0 on my side currently... what about on your side? :/

oh okay! yay! sorry about that! :P OS is kind of wonky right now lol :P thank you1!
