### Derive an expression for wave speed in terms of wavelength and frequency.

The general expression for speed is speed=distance/time.The wavelength (lambda) of a wave is the distance between one point on an oscillation to the exact same point on the next oscillation, or more simpl...

### How do I derive Kepler's 3rd law using Newton's Law of gravitation, in the case of a circular orbit?

Kepler's 3rd law states that the cube of the radius, r from a planet is directly proportional to the square of the orbital period around it, T: r3 ∝ T2 (this is the result we want!)<...
