Problem: Calculate the wavelength of each of the following frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.102.6 MHz (typical frequency for FM radio broadcasting)

FREE Expert Solution

Calculate the wavelength (λ):

Given:

ν = 102.6 MHz

*Hz = s-1

102.6 MHz(106 Hz1 MHz)(1 s-11 Hz)=1.026×108 s-1

c = 2.998x108 m/s


λ=cνλ=2.998×108 ms1.026×106 s-1λ=2.92 m
