WAVES physics A-LEVEL question

#1
you know for harmonics, as the harmonic no. increases, apparently the wavelength decrease and therefore the frequency INCREASES. How does that make sense cuz doesn't the frequency always remain the same?
also, i had a doubt about the velocity of a wave. are velocity and frequency basically the same thing? so something with a greater frequency has a greater velocity? sorry if my questions don't make any sense :/
thank you xxx

Nah ... wavelength and frquency are inversly proportional

I think velocity and frequency are two different things

Velocity is rate of acceleration per second
Frequency is no.of waves per second

So velocity IN a wave is wavelength and frequency ... so yh they are different

wait idt velocity is the rate of acceleration
isnt acceleration the rate of change of velocity
