Light is an electromagnetic wave and travels at a speed of 3.00 108 m/s. The human eye is most sensitive to yellow-green light, which has a wavelength of 5.58 10-7 m. What is the frequency of this light?

Ever heard of the equation
(wavelength) x (frequency) = wave speed?

Use it to get the answer.
