We are being asked to convert wavelength of 3.5 x 10 -7 m to frequency.
Wavelength, frequency, and the speed of light are connected by the following equation:
where c = speed of light = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s
Use equation c=vλ and c=3.00 x 10 8 m/s to convert a wavelength of 3.5 x 10 -7 m to frequency (s-1).
