### Frequency and Wavelength

What is the relationship between frequency and wavelength?

### Re: Frequency and Wavelength

Frequency and wavelength are inversely proportional. This can be seen in the equation of

If you rearrange this so that lambda and nu are on opposites sides of the equation,

then you see that as lambda increases, nu decreases and so they are inversely proportional.

### Re: Frequency and Wavelength

Frequency and wave length are inversely proportional. When frequency increases, wavelength decreases, and vice versa!

Hope this helps!

### Re: Frequency and Wavelength

As seen in the equation c=λ v (speed of light = wavelength * frequency), the wavelength and the frequency have an inversely proportional relationship. This means that as the wavelength gets longer, the frequency gets smaller, and vice versa.
