Can someone explain to me why frequency is represented as "v" in the equation c = v ( lambda)?

"v" comes from the Greek symbol "nu" (v) which is used to represent the frequency of a light wave.
Hope this helps!

If you're interested in frequency, I recommend reading the Wikipedia page behind it:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frequency
v (or nu) can also be expressed in Hz (Hertz), which is pretty interesting.
