  • Amplitude is the maximum height of the wave measured from the middle. Measured in metres (m).
  • Wavelength in metres (m) is the distance from one crest to the next crest.
  • Frequency in hertz (Hz) is the number of waves passing a point per secound.

The wave equation:-

  •  Wave speed (m/s) =
