Problem: The wavelength of some orange light is 620.0 nm. What is the frequency of this orange light?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to calculate the frequency of orange light from its wavelength (620.0 nm).

Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The relation between the velocity, wavelength and frequency of electromagnetic radiation is:

c = λν

Where,

c = speed of light

λ = wavelength

ν = frequency
