Physics 11

An FM radio station transmits radio signals that have a wavelength of 3.2m. Where would you have to adjust your tuner in order to pick up its music? Note: FM waves are measured in MHZ

I have no idea where to go with this...

Thank you :)

  1. frequency = speed / wavelength

    f = c / 3.2 m = 93.7 MHz

  2. Thank you :) is c=300m/s a relatively constant value?

  3. c is the speed of light
    (like E = m c^2)

    3x10^8 m/s
