Students should note the inverse relationship between
wavelength and frequency: as wavelength increases, frequency
decreases OR as wavelength decreases, frequency increases.
They should note a similar inverse relationship between
wavelength and energy. Students should also note the linear,
correlated relationship between frequency and energy: as
frequency increases, energy increases.
Students might also compare the size of the wavelength of
various waves to the sizes of common objects, as illustrated
in the above figure. They might also note how small the
