Calculate the frequency of radiation with a wavelength of 1.27 × 104 °A (angstroms).
Answer in units of s^−1.

I got 8.34080793e-25. Is that right?

  • Chemistry -

    DOesn't look right to me.

    frequency=speedlight/wavelength
    = 3E8/1.27E(-10+4)

    Can you elaborate on the steps?

  • Chemistry -

    Is the answer 2.362204724e14 Hz?

  • Chemistry -

    That looks ok to me (the last figure that is).
