Speed of Light

Postby Yazmin Bocanegra 3L » Wed Nov 06, 2019 1:12 pm

When using the equation, c = lambda x v, c equals the speed of light. Is the standard unit for "c" nanometers or meters?

The value is given in normal meters/second fashion and you can convert it beyond that.

The standard unit for speed of light is m / s. The units are also given in the constants sheet provided to us during finals/midterms.

Speed of light, c, in the equation is m/s!
