# What name is given to the time required for one complete wave to pass a given point?

Jun 21, 2018

Time Period (T) in seconds (s).

#### Explanation:

The amount of time required for one complete wave to pass a point is the time period.

Note that:

T= $\frac{1}{f}$

Here, f is the frequency of the wave in Hertz (Hz) or
per second (${s}^{-} 1$).

Here, frequency is the number of waves passing per unit time.

Also note that:

f= $\frac{1}{T}$
