Wave crests (adjacent wavefronts) take a time of one period to pass a fixed point, traveling at the wave speed (or phase velocity) for a distance of one wavelength. Thus / 18 m/(5.3 m/s) 3.40 s. T v = = = 17. I NTERPRET This problem is about wave propagation. Given the speed and frequency of the ripples, we are asked to compute the period and the wavelength. D EVELOP Equation 14.1 relates the speed of the wave to its period, frequency, and wavelength: v f T = = This is the equation we shall use to solve the problem.

Given the speed and frequency of various electromagnetic waves, we are asked to compute their wavelength. D EVELOP Equation 14.1 relates the speed of the wave to its period, frequency, and wavelength: v v f T f = = = This is the equation we shall use to solve the problem. E VALUATE Since the speed of propagation of electromagnetic waves in vacuum is simply equal to the speed of light, 8 3.0 10 m/s, v c = = Equation 14.1 gives (a) 8 6 3 10 m/s 10 Hz 300 m c f = = = ; (b) 8 6 3 10 m/s 190 10 Hz 1.58 m c f = = = ; (c) 8 10 3 10 m/s 10 Hz 0.03 m 3 cm c f = = = = ; (d) 8 13 3 10 m/s 6 4 10 Hz 7.5 10 m 7.5 m c f  = = = = ; (e) 8 14 3 10 m/s 7 6 10 Hz 5.0 10 m 500 nm c f  = = = = ; (f ) 8 18 o 3 10 m/s 10 1.0 10 Hz 3.0 10 m 3A c f  = = = = (See Appendix C on units.) A SSESS If the speed of propagation is kept fixed, then a higher frequency means a shorter wavelength. 20. The wave speed can be calculated from the distance and the travel time, which, together with the frequency and Equation 14.1, gives a wavelength of / ( / )/ 1200 km/(5 60 3.1) 1.29 km. v f d t f = = = = Section 14.2 Wave Math 14.1 14 14.2 Chapter 14 21. I NTERPRET This problem is about the ultrasound wave. Given its frequency, and wavelength, we want to find its angular frequency, wave number, and wave speed.
