The wave equation c is the speed at which the wave moves, measured in meters per second (m sec -1 ) λ is the wavelength, the distance between adjacent crests or troughs - measured in meters or multiples thereof (m,cm,nm etc.) ν is a frequency - the number of cycles per second - measured in inverse seconds or Hertz (sec -1 or Hz)
