3. Which of the following statements best described the mathematical relationship of frequency and wavelength?
a. Frequency and wavelength are directly proportional from each other.
b. Frequency and wavelength are inversely proportional from each other.
c. When frequency increases, wavelength also increases.
d. When frequency decreases, wavelength also decreases.​



The wavelength and frequency of light are closely related. The higher the frequency, the shorter the wavelength. Because all light waves move through a vacuum at the same speed, the number of wave crests passing by a given point in one second depends on the wavelength.


The wavelength of the wave is inversely proportional to the frequency of the wave as the speed of the wave remains constant. If the wavelength of the wave decreases then the frequency of the wave increases. Therefore, the frequency of a wave increases as the wavelength decreases because the wave speed remains constant.

Does higher wavelength mean more frequency?

The frequency of a wave is inversely proportional to its wavelength. That means that waves with a high frequency have a short wavelength, while waves with a low frequency have a longer wavelength. Light waves have very, very short wavelengths.
