A ray in the emission spectrum has a wavelength of 3.10 x 1014 meters. Given that the speed of light is 2.998 x 108 m/s, what is the frequency of the ray?

i know the equation to work it out but how would i set it up?

v= 2.998 X 10^8 which can be approximated as 3 X 10^8 lambda = 3.10 X 10^14

is that the one ?i thought it was velocity of a wave = frequency x wavelength

You have to use the given formula: \[f=\frac{ v }{ \lambda }\], where f is frequency, v is speed and lambda is wavelength.

@Hoslos but hey can you help me on this one question its easy but i just wanna double check lol?

No problem. Maybe you did not consider that those figures have exponents. Simply plotting the following in your calculator, you get\[f=\frac{ 2.998*10^{8} }{ 3.10*10^{14} }=9.67*10^{-7}Hz\]
