General Properties of Waves (Worksheet 1, Example 3)

Wavelength= 16cm= 0.16m
Time= 1.44s
Velosity= 16/1.44= 0.111m/s (3sf)
Ans: 0.111m/s (3sf)

It is not possible to change the speed of the wave pulse without changing the width. Regardless of the amplitude and damping, the wavelength would still be 16cm.
