# How does amplitude affect the frequency of a wave?

No real wave is perfectly linear. A very large amplitude can increase the speed of sound in a medium. The frequency of sound can affect the perceived loudness, where amplitude is held constant. Also, the amplitude can affect one's sensitivity to detecting small changes in pitch.

In respect to this, what is the relationship between the amplitude and wavelength of a wave?

None. For any wave, the amplitude can be anything. There is a simple relationship between wavelength, frequency, and velocity. You can see this easily: a wave travels one wavelength L in one period P, so v = L/P.

How does the amplitude affect the wavelength?

Transcript of How Does the Amplitude and Wavelength affect the energy of a. Wavelength is defined as the distance from the height on the wave to the next spot on the wave where it is at the same height and going in the same direction. The greater the energy, the larger the frequency and the smaller the wavelength.

What is the relationship between the frequency and the wavelength of a wave?

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.
