# define wave length and pitch , write the relation of the quantity that determines pitch with wavelength and velocity of a wave

Dear Student ,

The distance moved by a wave in one complete cycle is called its wavelength. In simple words, it is the distance between two consecutive crests or two consecutive troughs.
Pitch is the brain interpretation of frequency. So, Pitch is directly proportional to frequency. But, Frequency=Velocity/Wavelength
So,Pitch (is proportional to) Velocity/Wavelength.

Regards
