By using this wave period calculator you can calculate the time it takes for one complete wave cycle given its frequency.

**Wave Period is the measure of the distance a wave travels in one complete cycle, such as from crest to crest or trough to trough. **

Wave periods are typically measured in seconds. For example, measure the wave period by counting the seconds between waves passing under a boat, hitting a rock, or passing a buoy.

To calculate the wave period, you need to know that wave period and frequency are inverse to each other. The equation is as follow:

Wave period (sec) = 1 frequency (Hz)

T = 1 f

Suppose you have a wave with a frequency of 100 Hz. By having this find the wave period.

Wave Period = 1 Frequency

T = 1 100 Hz

T = 0.01 seconds

Yes, a wave is considered periodic motion because its pattern of movement repeats itself in equal intervals of time. E.g, waves of things like photons and radio waves.

Some factors include wind speed, wind duration, fetch, and water depth.

Waves along with the longer periods help to generate powerful currents and erosion forces along coastlines.
