The standard equation for electromagnetic wave:

$\overline{){\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{E}}}_{{\mathbf{0}}}{\mathbf{c}}{\mathbf{o}}{\mathbf{s}}{\mathbf{\left(}}{\mathbf{\omega }}{\mathbf{t}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{k}}{\mathbf{x}}{\mathbf{\right)}}}$

With the given equation:

E0 = 10 V/m

ω = 107

Therefore, c = vλ = ωλ/2π
