Grade 6 Waves and Sound
What is the wavelength of the wave?
  1. the greatest change from the initial condition of the characteristic that defines a wave
  2. the distance in space at a given time from the beginning to the end of a wave, or between equivalent points in the cycle of a repeating wave
  3. the place in the medium that is just starting to move because of the wave, having previously not been affected by the wave; the leading edge moves along the medium at the head of the wave
  4. a change from an initial condition
