We are being asked to calculate the frequency of blue light with a wavelength equal to 470 nm.

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)

We can rearrange the equation to isolate the frequency (v):
