To convert between wavelength (λ) & frequency (ν) we use the equation c = ν λ, where c equals the speed of light ( 3.00 x 108 m/s).
Since we are starting with a wavelength and converting it to the frequency we rearrange the equation to:
A laser pointer used in a lecture hall emits light at 650 nm.
What is the frequency of this radiation?
