A wave machine in a swimming pool produces 10 waves each second. The waves travel 30 metres along the pool in 6 seconds.

a What is the frequency of the waves?

b Calculate the speed of the waves.

c Calculate the wavelength of the waves.

a. You are given the frequency! f = 10 Hz (or 10 s^{-1})

b. Speed = distance/time. v = 30/6 → 5 m/s

c. wavelength = v/f → 5/10 → 1/2 m
