In physics, the wavelength is the spatial period of a periodic wave—the distance over which the wave's shape repeats. Wikipedia
Parameter for describing a wave Wikipedia Disambiguation
Spatial period of the wave—the distance over which the wave's shape repeats, and thus the inverse of the spatial frequency Wikidata
The distance between consecutive crests of a wave. OmegaWiki
The length of a single cycle of a wave, as measured by the distance between one peak or trough of a wave and the next; it is often designated in physics as λ, and corresponds to the velocity of the wave divided by its frequency. Wiktionary
