How do you calculate the wavelength of a wave for a displacement against time graph?
The max displacement is 4m and the time period of 1 wave is 2s

If you know the time period you can work out the frequency. Then simply divide the speed of the wave (most likely c unless stated otherwise) by the frequency to get the wavelength (using the formula derived from speed=distance/time I'm sure you know which one I mean).
