Define the terms 'frequency', 'wavelength' and 'velocity' of a sound wave. What is the relation between them?

Frequency of Sound: Number of cycles or vibrations in a second is known as the frequency of sound. It is denoted by $f$. Its unit is $per\  second$ or $Hz$.

Wavelength of Sound: The distance between two crests or troughs in a sound wave is known as the wave length of sound.

Velocity of sound: Distance travelled in a second by a sound is the velocity of sound. It is denoted by $v$ and its SI unit is $m/s$.
