## Wave Speed Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the speed or velocity of a wave.

V = f * w

- Where V is the velocity (m/s)
- f is the frequency (hz)
- w is the wavelength (m)

## Wave Speed Definition

Wave speed, also known as wave velocity, is a term used in physics to describe the speed at which a wave is propagating. Most often this involves light in some kind of medium, whether it be air or a vacuum.

## Wave Speed Example

How to calculate a wave speed?

**First, determine the frequency.**Calculate the frequency of the wave.

**Next, determine the wavelength.**Calculate the wavelength of the wave.

**Finally, calculate the wave speed.**Using the formula above, calculate the wave speed.
