###### FREE Expert Solution

Amplitude is the maximum displacement from the equilibrium position.

Frequency:

$\overline{){\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{T}}}$, where T is period.

The velocity of wave propagation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{\lambda }}}$, where f is frequency and λ is the wavelength.
