How does increasing the speed of a wave travels affect its wavelength?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

anyone????????

www.physicsclassroom.com

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what.... http://www.physicsclassroom.com is too general

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i need specific info

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Is it an electromagnetic wave or mechanical wave?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

electromagnetic wave

OpenStudy (jamesj):

And now you see why linking to www.physicsclassroom.com is not useful

OpenStudy (anonymous):

why?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ohhhhhhh

OpenStudy (anonymous):

???

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Electromagnetic waves are considered to be traveling at the speed of light for simple analysis, but\[\lambda = {v \over f}\]From the equation we see a direct correlation between velocity and wavelength. At the same frequency, if we increase velocity, we increase wavelength.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[wavelength = v \div f\]?????

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes, lambda \(\lambda\) is the symbol for wavelength.
