The speed of radio waves is 3*10^8m/s, the same as the speed of light. If a spacecraft transmits a radio signal with frequency 3*10^9Hz, what is the wavelength of those waves?

  • physics -

    Divide the speed of "light", in m/s, by the frequency in Hz. That will give you the wavelength in meters.
