wavelength

is the wavelength the distance between one peak of the wave to the next peak?

Yes, that's correct. The units for wavelength is m (or, more commonly nm)

Yes! The wavelength is the distance from one peak of the wave to the other peak. A lower wavelength (100) has a higher frequency and a higher wavelength has a lower frequency (since they are inversely proportional).

The wavelength is the distance from one peak of the wave to the other peak, the shorter the wavelength the higher the frequency

one wavelength equals the distance between two successive wave crests or troughs.
