the frequency of yellow lights is 5.00 x 10^14 Hz. if it travels through space (where v= 3.00 x 10^8m/s) find the wavelength of this light.

1. wave equation: freq x wavelength= speed light

wavelength= 3E8/5E14 m

3. v=f*lambda
f=v/lambda
lambda(wavelength) = v/f
wavelength = 3*10^8/5*10^14
wavelength = 6000 Armstrong
(1 Armstrong = 10^-10m )
