Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Stephanie on Saturday, December 6, 2008 at 6:37pm.

Calculate the wavelength of the yellow light emitted by a Sodium Lamp if the frequency is 5.10 X 10^14 Hz.

Formula:
Wavelenght (lamda)= speed of light, 3 X 10^8(c)/frequency, 5.1 X 10^14.

My answer was 5.9 X 10^-5. Is this anywhere near correct? Please explain the steps if I'm incorrect. Thank you for the help.
