🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Korzeniewski's class at TTU.

A photon of light has a frequency of 3.26 x 10 ^{15} hertz. What is its wavelength? The speed of light is 2.998 x 10^{8} m/s.

a. 9.78 x 10^{14} nm

b. 109 nm

c. 1.09 x 10 ^{7} nm

d. 978 nm

e. 92.0 nm

We are being asked to calculate the wavelength of a photon with a frequency equal to 3.26x10^{15} Hertz.

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 wavelength (λ):
