**Formula:** `v = frequency × wavelength`

The speed of a wave, often denoted by ** v**, is calculated by multiplying the frequency of the wave by its wavelength. This formula is derived from the relationship between how often a wave oscillates (frequency) and the distance between two consecutive points that are in phase (wavelength).

** Frequency**, usually measured in hertz (Hz), represents the number of wave cycles per second, while

**is the spatial period of the wave measured in units of length, such as meters. The resulting wave speed is expressed in meters per second (m/s). This calculation is crucial in various scientific disciplines, including physics, oceanography, and acoustics, as it helps determine how fast a wave propagates through a medium.**
