We can define wave period as the measure of time it takes for a wave cycle to complete or time taken by a wave to complete one oscillation.
Formula to calculate wave period using frequency.
Wave period is the reciprocal of frequency.
A wave has a frequency of 2000 Hz, determine its period.
Therefore, the wave period is 0.0005 seconds.
Formula to calculate wave period from wave length ( λ) and speed.
Determine the wave period of a water wave whose length is 3m and its speed is 6 m/s.
Therefore, the wave period is 0.5 seconds.
