# Finding Wavelength from Diagram

### Finding wavelength from a diagram

#### Transverse Wave

Wavelength is the distance between two successive crests or troughs.

#### Longitudinal Wave

Wavelength is the distance between two successive compressions or rarefaction.

#### Wavefront diagram

Wavelength is the distance between two successive wavefront

Example 1:

The figure above shows the propagation of a water wave. What is the amplitude of the wave?

Amplitude= 10cm 2 =5cm

Example 2 :

The figure above shows a transverse wave. The wavelength of the wave is equal to
