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 (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 ---no. of oscilation per second

time period --time taken to complete one oscilation

frequency=1/time period

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