What is the full formula for frequencys and wavelengths?

The wavelength formula is λ = v/f

where

λ = wavelength of a sound wave or electromagnetic wave

v = the speed of propagation of the wave,

f = frequency of the wave in 1/s = Hz.

c=nu*lambda

c is speed of light = 3 x 10

^{8} m/s

nu (the Greek letter) is frequency in sec

^{-1}
lambda (the Greek letter) is wavelength in meters.
