1. Velocity of light (c) = 3*10^8 m/s

You should know velocity = wavelength * frequency

Convert the wavelength into meters and solve put it in the above equation. You should get the answer.

And yeah, I ain't no engineer.

2. Note that you will need to change A to meters; also, wave number = 1/wavelength
