wavelengthEach wave has a shape and length.  Wavelength, abbreviated as \(\lambda\) (Greek symbol \lambda), is the distance between the crests of a wave.


Wavelength formulas

\(\large{ \lambda = \frac { c } { f }    }\)   
\(\large{ \lambda =  c \; T    }\)   


\(\large{ \lambda }\)  (Greek symbol \lambda) = wavelength

\(\large{ f }\) = frequency

\(\large{ c }\) = speed of light

\(\large{ T }\) = time period, the time required for one cycle or wave occillation
