## How do you measure a wave?

Trough – The lowest point on the wave below the still-water line. Wave Height – The vertical distance between crest and trough. Wavelength – The horizontal distance between successive crests or troughs. Wave Period – The time it takes for one complete wave to pass a particular point.

## How do you find frequency in statistics?

Count the tally marks to determine the frequency of each class. The relative frequency of a data class is the percentage of data elements in that class. The relative frequency can be calculated using the formula fi=fn f i = f n , where f is the absolute frequency and n is the sum of all frequencies.

## Does more energy mean higher frequency?

Since all that waves really are is traveling energy, the more energy in a wave, the higher its frequency. The lower the frequency is, the less energy in the wave.

## Is energy a frequency?

Just as wavelength and frequency are related to light, they are also related to energy. The shorter the wavelengths and higher the frequency corresponds with greater energy.

## Why does energy increase with frequency?

The higher the amplitude, the higher the energy. To summarise, waves carry energy. The amount of energy they carry is related to their frequency and their amplitude. The higher the frequency, the more energy, and the higher the amplitude, the more energy.

## Does all light travel at the same speed?

Light, no matter how high-or-low in energy, always moves at the speed of light, so long as it’s traveling through the vacuum of empty space. And to the best of our knowledge and measurements, the speed of light has the same value of 299,792,458 m/s at all times and all locations in the Universe.
