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.

GK,
Your method is correct but your power of 10 is wrong.

Stephanie,
Thank you. I rechecked my problem. Should the power be positive? Or is it another power instead?

Another power.
