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?
  • rvc
okay what is the equation?
  • rvc
\[v=n\lambda \]

  • rvc
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.

oh okay i see now
  • rvc
you are correct @flight23
  • rvc
now just re-arrange
okay well i did that and i got an answer way off :(
What did you get?

@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\[f=\frac{ 2.998*10^{8} }{ 3.10*10^{14} }=9.67*10^{-7}Hz\]
ohh i probably put something in wrong but thank u so much appreciate it ! @Hoslos
Right.
