### Frequency and Speed?

As frequency decreases, speed of radiation should also decreases right? Because a lower frequency = longer wavelengths and longer wavelengths means there are less oscillations per second? I'm a little confused if I'm understanding this correctly. Can someone explain?

If you are referring to electromagnetic speed, the speed will always be a constant, "c" which is 3.00x10^8 m.s^-1.

c= frequency x wavelength.
The frequency and wavelength are inverses of each other, while the speed stays constant.
