How to reconstruct information from a graph of an oscillation? [closed]

We are given a graph of the position of a wave (amplitude). How can we calculate the wavelength, frequency and the maximum speed of a particle attached to that wave?

We have

Speed = wave length $\times$ frequency,

$W=2 \pi \times$ frequency ,

$V_{max}=A\times W$.

So how to calculate A?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

well, this is some type of sinusoid. Wavelength, in a very rough and general way, is the spatial period of the wave, the length required to come back to its original starting point. In this case, wavelength is 4 meters for B and 2 meters for A. Does the problem give more info? – Dylan Sabulsky Nov 13 '12 at 5:23
They gave me speed and they are asking frequency and max speed ? – Alpha Nov 13 '12 at 5:25
Please add that to the problem itself. When asking a question you should state the full question or the particular concept you are having trouble with, and then list what you know and/or what you've tried. – Dylan Sabulsky Nov 13 '12 at 5:28
$2\pi\omega \cdot A = v_{max}$ so try $v_{max}=\lambda \omega=A \cdot 2\pi\omega$. Solve for what you want, $A=\frac{\lambda}{2\pi}$ where $\lambda$ is different for each wave, as I enumerated in the comments, $\lambda_A=2$m and $\lambda_B=4$m.
