The FM band of radio waves are measured in megahertz (MHz), which are the numbers you see on the radio dial. Therefore, a radio station at 102.5 on the FM dial has a frequency of 102.5 MHz or 102,500,000 Hz. What is the wavelength of the radio station that has a frequency of 102.5 MHz on the FM dial? The units for the answer are meters.
