# Wavelength

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

## Wavelength formulas

\(\large{ \lambda = \frac { c } { f } }\) | |

\(\large{ \lambda = c \; T }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ \lambda }\) (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
