# The Sound from a Mosquito is Produced When It Vibrates Its Wings at an Average Rate of 500 Vibrations per Second. What is the Time Period of the Vibration? - Science

The sound from a mosquito is produced when it vibrates its wings at an average rate of 500 vibrations per second. What is the time period of the vibration?

#### Solution

The time required to complete one oscillation is known as time period. It is given by the inverse of the frequency.

Time period  = 1/"Frequency of oscillation"

Frequency of oscillations = 500 Hz

Time period  = 1/500 = 0.002 s

Is there an error in this question or solution?
