Question 9; 6th edition

Postby VGonzalez » Thu Oct 11, 2018 3:11 pm

Not sure if I am posting in the right section, but what are the standard units for frequency and wavelength given by the equations. The chart has a wavelength in nanometers and Dr. Lavelle did an example on Wednesday also with nanometers but I thought meters was standard.

The standard units for frequency are Hertz (Hz). Also the standard units for wavelength is meters. You always want to convert the units to this standard when using them for calculations.

For frequency, the standard unit is in s^-1 or Hertz (Hz). For wavelengths, meter is standard in calculations, however, you can change it to nanometers with conversions.

When doing calculations that involves wavelength, e.g. , the units for should be in meters, but in conversions/final answers it usually makes more sense to represent this value in nanometers, which is why Lavelle/the solutions manual usually does so.
