# What Is the Distance between One Point in a Wave to the Same Point in the Wave Called?

## Answer

The distance between one point in a wave to the same point in the next wave is called the wavelength. It can be measured from top to top, trough to trough, or any other points on the waves, as long as they are corresponding.

The distance between one point in a wave to the same point in another wave is called the wavelength. It is considered a complete wave cycle.
The distance between similar points of wave is called Time Period of the signal. It is an inverse function of frequency. It specifies time required for a wave to change state.
The distance between one point in a wave to the same point is called 'wavelength'. Wavelength can be measured from one wave cycle starting point to the next, from crest to crest, or from trough to trough.
