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. The period P is defined as the inverse of the frequency f, so P = 1/f.Likewise, people ask, how does the amplitude affect the frequency?

No real wave is perfectly linear. A very large

**amplitude**can increase the speed of sound in a medium. If the medium is part a the source that employs resonance, then the**frequency**increases with the speed of the sound. The**frequency**of sound can**affect**the perceived loudness, where**amplitude**is held constant.What is amplitude and frequency?

Waves are described and measured by five wave parameters: the period, the

**frequency**, the**amplitude**, the wavelength, and the speed. The period of a wave is the time it takes to complete one cycle. The**frequency**is just the opposite; it's the number of wave cycles that are completed in one second.
