User: 9.   A wave with a period of 0.008 second has a frequency of      A. 125 Hz. B. 12.5 Hz. C. 800 Hz. D. 80 Hz.

Weegy: A. 125 Hz. A disturbance that propagates through space is called a wave. [ Periodic waves are characterised by crests(highs) and troughs(lows). The Time Period of a wave is the time taken for a wave to complete one cycle and come back to the position from where it started(0 or 2pi radians). The Frequency is how many cycles the wave completes in unit time(one second) called Hertz(Hz). Now if one cycle takes = 0.008 sec in one sec no of cycles = (1 sec / 0.008 sec) = 125 cycles/sec = 125 Hz ]
