    how are these two equations related

    1) frequency = 1/t
    2) wave speed = d/t

    thanks

    Wave speed =distance/time
    =wavelength/time taken for one oscillation
    Frequency, f, is the number of oscillations per second and the time period, T, is the time taken for one oscillation. Frequency is the inverse of the time period and vice versa.

    Therefore
    Wave speed=wavelength/ Time period
    since time period is the inverse of frequency an so is equal to 1/f,
    Wave speed =wavelength/ (1/f)
    Wave speed =wavelength X frequency
