Wavelength is a property of wave phenomena. The wavelength is the distance from the peak of one wave to the peak of the next, and it is usually expressed in meters (or centimeters, kilometers, or some other variation).

When waves propagate at a known speed, wavelength is inversely proportional to frequency.
