What is the full formula for frequencys and wavelengths?

The wavelength formula is λ = v/f
λ = wavelength of a sound wave or electromagnetic wave
v = the speed of propagation of the wave,
f = frequency of the wave in 1/s = Hz.

c is speed of light = 3 x 108 m/s
nu (the Greek letter) is frequency in sec-1
lambda (the Greek letter) is wavelength in meters.
