# What is the frequency of a wave that has a wave speed of 80 m/s and a wavelength of 0.20 m?

16Hz

#### Explanation:

c = vλ
Where $c$ is the frequency.

$V$ is your wave speed of $80 \frac{m}{s}$

λ is your wavelength of $0.20 m$

$c = \left(80 \frac{m}{s}\right) \left(0.20 m\right)$ Solving for $c$

$c = 16 H z$
Frequency is measured in Hz usually.
