Problem: Calculate the wavelength given the frequency of radiation is 5.10×1014 s⁻¹

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to calculate the wavelength given the frequency of radiation is 5.10×1014 s⁻¹.


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

c=λν

c = speed of light, m/s
λ = wavelength, in m
ν = frequency, Hz (Hertz)


We can rearrange the equation to isolate the wavelength (λ):
