Solution

## The correct option is D 43 cmLet the distance between two consecutive compressions be x. Distance between four consecutive compressions, AB = 4 cm ∴ Distance between two consecutive compressions, x=43 cm The distance between two consecutive compressions or two consecutive rarefactions is known as wavelength of the wave. ⇒ ⇒ Wavelength of the wave,λ=x=43cm Hence, the correct answer is option (d).
