Hi physicists! Take a look at our salt waves we made today.

Watch Salt waves movie 1 and 2 and compare the speed which the poster paper was pulled along the bench.

The frequency of the swinging salt funnel stays the same in both movies.

What can you say about the wavelength of the salt waves as the speed of the poster is increased keeping the funnel frequency the same?
