What is the wavelength of the waves you create in a swimming pool if you splash your hand at a rate of 2.00 $\mathrm{Hz}$ and the waves propagate at 0.800 $\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s} ?$

$\lambda=0.4 \mathrm{m}$

Now we want to find the wavelength of the wave. We know that the wave velocity is equaling the frequency multiplied by the wavelength. And so we can say that Then the wavelength would be equaling the wave velocity divided by the frequency. This is going to be equal in 2.800 meters per second. This would be the divided by the frequency of 2.0 hurts. And so we know that then the wavelength, his 0.400 meters. This would be our final answer. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for watching.
