Scouts at a camp shake the rope bridge they have just crossed and observe the wave crests to be 8.00 m apart. If they shake it the bridge twice per second, what is the propagation speed of the waves?

$v=16 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}$

So in this case, we are given the wavelength, which is eight meters and frequency, as it says twice perception. That is two hoods, so we can find the velocity by multiplying length on the frequency. So this is Mrs Hodes. This is equal to 16 meters per seconds. Thanks.
