    The distance that a wave propagated in space or along a wire travels while going through a single cycle (360°). At room temperature one wavelength at 100Hz is around 11 feet, while at 10kHz the distance is reduced to about 1.3 inches. An important detail that needs to be understood in the design of acoustic spaces.
