Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, November 16, 2009 at 1:55pm.

If the frequency of oscillation of the wave emitted by an FM radio station is 89.8 MHz, determine the wave's wavelength.

This is what I did:

89.8 MHz = 89800000 Hz
v = lambda x f
lambda = v/f = 343 m/s/89800000 Hz = 3.82 x 10^-6 m

What am I doing wrong?
