Introduction to Phase Velocity of a Wave

The phase velocity of a wave is calculated by multiplying its wavelength by its frequency. In this formula, v represents the phase velocity of the wave, λ is the wavelength of the wave, and f is the frequency of the wave. The result is expressed in distance per time unit, such as meters per second (m/s).

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The wavelength and frequency should be greater than zero.


This calculator takes into account the wavelength and frequency of a wave and outputs its phase velocity. It is essential for understanding the behavior of waves in various mediums.
