    velocity can be measured by the distance it takes per unit time generally \(m~s^{-1} \)

    waves' velocity is measured in "frequency" or Hertz (Hz)

    usually measured in per seconds :) so if you have 20 m in 2 seconds, all you have to do is simplify it so that denominator is 1 instead of 2

    The velocity formula is D/T.

    correct @Legitemal but the distance is measured in wavelength

    just apply simple formula.."wave" is written to confuse u...wait which grade are u in? anyways it should be v=d/t ie v=10/2 = 5m/s
