Longitudinal wave: region of increased density: compression; region of reduced density: rarefaction; compressions are the darker areas on the wave; the compressions and rarefactions move with constant speed v; wavelength is distance from one rarefaction to the next or one compression to the next; the speed does not depend on the frequency!
