period (T) is simply one divided by frequency (f) or T = 1/f. Frequency is cycles per second and period is the time it takes to complete one cycle. For example frequency of 10 cycles per second has a period of 0.1 second

Period and frequency are each others' reciprocals.

Frequent is how often something occurs so it's more to do with time. period is how long it last for so duration but in what context do u mean it?

### How does the frequency of a wave changes when the period of the increases?

The relationship of frequency to period is that frequency is thereciprocal of the period.f = 1/TSo their product is always ' 1 ', and if the period increases, thenthe frequency decreases by exactly the same factor.

### How are frequency and wave period related?

Period = 1 / frequency

### How is the period related to the frequency of a timer?

Period and frequency are mutual reciprocal. Period = 1/frequency Frequency = 1/period

### What happens to period when frequency increase?

Time period = 1 / frequency. Frequency = 1 / time period. When frequency increases, the period decrises.

### As the frequency of a set of waves increases do the period of each wave decreases?

The frequency and period of a wave are inversely proportional. Therefore, as the frequency increases, the period decreases. frequency = 1/period period = 1/frequency

### How are frequency and period of wave related?

They are mutual reciprocals. frequency = 1/period period = 1/frequency

### What is the Difference between period and frequency?

Time period = 1 / frequency. Frequency = 1 / time period.

### How do you find the period of the frequency?

The period is the reciprocal of the frequency.

### What is the difference between the period and the frequency of an object?

Time period = 1 / frequency. Frequency = 1 / time period.

### How frequency and wave period related?

Period = 1 / frequency
