In Waves i earlier studied that

velocity of the wave is given $wa\sqrt{1-y^2}$

w= angular velocity a=amplitude of the wave y=post. of wave at any time

and now when i am studying wave optics velocity is given by

$ƒ*Λ$ f=frequency of the wave ^=wavelength of the wave

are these velocity anyhow related?
