Calculating Wavelength

Postby Lauren Wong 3K » Thu Oct 06, 2016 3:48 pm

How should I approach this question:
FM radio station CHEM broadcasts at 99.5 MHz. Calculate the wavelength of the corresponding radio waves.

We know that the frequency is 99.5 MHz, so you would be able to find the wavelength by using the equation .

Substitute in the speed of light for c and your frequency above (remember to convert to Hz) (1 MHz = 10^6 Hz) to find the wavelength.
