Description

Properties
For a monochromatic wave, "wavelength" is the distance between two successive points in a direction perpendicular to the wavefront where at a given instant the phase differs by $$2\pi$$. The wavelength of a sinusoidal wave is the spatial period of the wave—the distance over which the wave's shape repeats. The SI unit of wavelength is the meter.

Annotations
Wavelength
$$\lambda = \frac{c}{\nu}$$, where $$\lambda$$ is the wave length, $$\nu$$ is the frequency, and $$c$$ is the speed of light in the medium.
