Speed of a Wave For example, an ocean wave is traveling in one direction has a wavelength of 1.0m and a frequency of 1.25Hz. What is the speed (in m/s) of this ocean wave? v wave = ! f = 1.25 m Please note that the water is not actually moving at this speed, but the wave is propagating at this speed. If a rubber duckie were sitting on the water it would most likely just bob up and down.
