What is the frequency of a pendulum swinging?
Remember T bottom of alphabet, the l then g for period
What is the period of a pendulum?
Period of pendulum
What is the eqn for a transverse wave speed on a rope?
v = (tension/linear density)^(1/2)

Remember V up from alphabet is T then L
What is the speed of a wave determined by?

What are the exceptions?
The medium and the type of wave. Does not depend on wavelength or frequency

UNLESS IT'S OPTICS.
What wave eqn can be used to relate linear density to wavelength?
If v = f λ and v = (tension/linear density)(^1/2)

Then λ= (tension/linear density)(^1/2) / f
