Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There's a simple formula which can be used to solve this problem: \[c = (\lambda)(f)\] where c is the speed of light, lambda is the wavelength of the light and f is the frequency of the light. So, we know 2 of these parameters, and we can simply plug in their values to the formula to find the unknown variable, the frequency f.
