We are asked to **determine the basic SI units for the wavelength of light**.

Wavelength, frequency, and the **speed of light** are connected by the following equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{c}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{\lambda \nu}}}$

c = speed of light, m/s

What are the basic SI units for the wavelength of light?
