### What does v stand for?

Under the Properties of Light slide, it said that "fields oscillate in direction & strength with frequency, v, (per second)..." but under the Properties of Electrons slide, it said that wavelength = h/(mass x velocity).

Does v stand for velocity or frequency?

Hi! The v in (mass*velocity) stands for velocity, and the other v that you see is most likely the Greek letter nu, which looks like a slanted v and stands for the frequency.
