 The wavelength (λ) is the actual distance traveled by a wave in a single cycle. The wavelength is inversely related to the frequency. This means that as the wavelength increases, the frequency decreases, and as the wavelength decreases, the frequency increases. The wavelength (λ) is the actual distance traveled by a wave in a single cycle.

 |Wavelength is measured by the distance it takes for a wave to complete a single cycle. A cycle is defined as the amount of space required for a wave to repeat itself. This can be determined from any point in the wave. The diagram above shows the wavelength measured from peak-to-peak,​ along the central axis, and trough-to-trough. All of these wavelengths are the same. | |Wavelength is measured by the distance it takes for a wave to complete a single cycle.
