ANS: Frequency= 1/Time period 

F= 1/T 

Thus, Frequency is inversely propertional to the Time period.

Increase in frequency means lesser the time period to complete one oscillation.

frequency ---no. of oscilation per second

time period --time taken to complete one oscilation

Frequency (ν) is the number of complete oscillations or vibrations in 1 s. It is the inverse of time period (T).

So, the frequency is,

Unit of frequency is s-1or Hz (Hertz).


Time period  of a wave is the time taken by a vibrating particle to make one complete vibration or it can be also defined as the time taken by a wave to move a distance equal to its wavelength. It is denoted by T. Its unit is second.


timePeriod and frequency are each others ' reciprocals.

Time period = 1 / frequency.

Frequency = 1 / time period.

frequency=1/time period

so the frequency is the inverse of time period.so they are related to each other.
