    \[h= \frac{ c }{ \lambda } \] where "c" is the speed of light, a constant that should be provided in your textbook so you can look that up or search on bing, "speed of light", the greek letter under "c" is lambda and represents wavelength. And finally, "h" represents wavelength, in units of Hertz (Hz).

    h should to be \[\nu\], which is frequency
