###### FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to calculate the frequency, ν given the wavelength, λ.

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
λ = wavelength, in m
ν = frequency, Hz (Hertz)
