Question

The SI unit of wavelength is ____.

  1. Meters
  2. Hertz 
  3. Seconds
  4. Quartz  

hintHint:

Distance between two consecutive crests and troughs is wavelength

The correct answer is: Meters


    • Wavelength can be defined as the distance between two consecutive rarefactions or two consecutive compressions.
    • The SI unit of wavelength is meter (m).
    • The SI unit of time is seconds (s or sec).
    • The SI unit of frequency is hertz(Hz).
    • So, the correct option is a.
