## What is M in waves?

Wave speed is equal to the square root of tension divided by the linear density of the string.

μ = m/L.

Linear density of the string is equal to the mass divided by the length of the string..

## What is the wavelength λ of the wave?

Figure 1. (A) A wave consists of alternation crests and troughs. The wavelength (λ) is defined as the distance between any two consecutive identical points on the waveform. The amplitude is the height of the wave.

## Does V stand for frequency?

The letter “v” represents velocity and “ƒ” represents frequency. Since the speed of sound is roughly 343 meters per second at 68° F (20° C), 343 m/s can be substituted for “v” when measuring the wavelength of sound waves.

## Which city does sound travel the fastest?

Solids: Sound travels fastest through solids. This is because molecules in a solid medium are much closer together than those in a liquid or gas, allowing sound waves to travel more quickly through it.

## What is V FΛ?

Similar arguments hold that a large instrument creates long-wavelength sounds. The relationship of the speed of sound, its frequency, and wavelength is the same as for all waves: vw = fλ, where vw is the speed of sound, f is its frequency, and λ is its wavelength.
