    |dw:1435379645710:dw| the \[\lambda \] is the wavelength

    Yep The distance between two consecutive crests or two consecutive troughs is called wavelength. Amplitude is the maximum displacement of the particle from its mean position.

    Guessing will not help and rvc has already told you the answers, look at the explanations and drawings again.

    hint: by definition, the distance between two consecutive crests of a wave, or most general, of an alternative function, is called the wave length of that wave or of that alternative function
