Answer:

I got #600# waves per second.

Explanation:

We need to use the frequency equation here, which is

#f=v/lambda#

#v# is the velocity of the wave in #m"/"s#

#lambda# is the wavelength in metres

#lambda=50cm=0.5m#

#:.f=(300)/(0.5)=600#

So, its frequency will be #600# waves per second.

That's a very fast wave as well compared to its wavelength!
