The energy of a wave is inversely proportional to the wavelength of the wave.

As wavelength increases, the energy of the wave decreases.

As wavelength decreases, the energy of the wave increases.

Explanation:

The energy of a wave is directly proportional to the wave’s frequency. As frequency increases, so does the energy of the wave. (energy is proportional to frequency )

How is this related to wavelength?

Frequency is inversely proportional to wavelength. That means that as frequency increases, wavelength decreases and as frequency decreases, wavelength increases. (frequency is inversely proportional to wavelength )

Therefore, as wavelength increases, the energy of a wave decreases and as wavelength decreases, the energy of a wave increases.
