##### Solution :-

(a) Wavelength - Wavelength can be defined as the distance between two consecutive rarefactions or two consecutive compressions. The SI unit of wavelength is meter (m).

(b) Frequency - Frequency is defined as the number of oscillations per second. The SI unit of frequency is hertz (Hz).

(c) Amplitude - Amplitude can be defined as the maximum height reached by the trough or crest of a sound wave.

(d) Time period - The time period is defined as the time required to produce one complete cycle of a sound wave
