Example of Wavelength

Wavelength measures the movement of light, sound, and water. To calculate the wavelength of these things, the distance between each crest, or the distance between repetitive sections on a propagating wave are measured. Wavelength is recorded in cm, nm, and meters.

Examples of Wavelength:

Light has a visible wavelength that ranges from 380-750 nm.
A microwave has a wavelength not visible to the human eye and is around 15,000,000 nm-1,000 000 nm.

Wavelength of a sine wave can be measured between any two points with the same phase, such as between crests, or troughs, or corresponding zero crossings as shown.
