the relationship bwtween frequency, wavelength, and speed holds for light waves because all forms of electromagnetic radiation travel at a single speed in a vaccum.
is this true??
or do different forms of electromagnetic radiation travel at different speeds?
The relationship between frequency, wavelength and speed holds for all wave motion, but the speeds differ with the situation and type of wave.
All electromagnetic waves IN A VACUUM travel at the same speed c, regardless of frequency.
Light can be slowed to very low speeds traveling through materials called Bose condensates. See
