the frequency of yellow lights is 5.00 x 10^14 Hz. if it travels through space (where v= 3.00 x 10^8m/s) find the wavelength of this light.

wave equation: freq x wavelength= speed light
wavelength= 3E8/5E14 m 
What is the frequency in hertz of particular wavelenght of uv light

v=f*lambda
f=v/lambda
lambda(wavelength) = v/f
wavelength = 3*10^8/5*10^14
wavelength = 6000 Armstrong
(1 Armstrong = 10^10m )
