Calculate the wavelength of the signal sent by Q101 assuming that the actual frequency is 101.1 MHz. Determine how long it would take the signal to reach a car 33.4km away from the station.

THANK YOU!

c = fw
c = speed of light (3E8 m/s)
f = frequency in Hz (convert MHz to Hz)
w = wavelength in meters.

For time,
distance = rate x time.
d = 33.4 km converted to meters.
r = 3E8 m/s
t = seconds.
