please help me i don't know the answer.
What is the mathematical relationship between frequency and wavelength for an EM wave?

  • physics -

    frequency is 1/s
    wavelength = m
    speed of light c is m/s

    so, wavelength = m/s * s = c*frequency

    as with any wave,

    wavelength = speed * frequency
