    From a random website: "The main properties of waves are defined below. Amplitude: the height of the wave, measured in meters. Wavelength: the distance between adjacent crests, measured in meters. Period: the time it takes for one complete wave to pass a given point, measured in seconds. Frequency: the number of complete waves that pass a point in one second, measured in inverse seconds, or Hertz (Hz). Speed: the horizontal speed of a point on a wave as it propagates, measured in meters / second." which makes me think there is something somewhat circular or chicken/egg about this question....
