# Problem: If you decrease the distance between successive crests of a wave, this changesA. the frequencyB. the wavelengthC. the speedD. both the wavelength and the speedE. both the wavelength and the frequency

###### FREE Expert Solution

The velocity of a wave:

$\overline{){\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{\lambda }}}$

The distance between successive crests is the wavelength. When the wavelength is changed the frequency will also change.
