Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your exponential numbers are not clear! If you use the formula wavelength = speed of light / frequency and work out the wavelengths for both of your frequencies and compare with the approximate values given below, you will be able to answer this question. microwaves 1 x 10^3m  1m infrared 1 x 10^3m  1 x 10^6m visible 1 x 10^6m  1 x 10^7m UV 1 x 10^8  1 x 10^9m. Also, have a look at some of the electromagnetic images on the internet e.g yahoo.images! You will find this v.useful!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I found this on google 5 different times and it wasn't helpful >.< I don;t understand how to do this and I can't make it anymore clear, it is a question from my quiz I copied it word for word, I have to answer using the information they gave me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So no ideas? Because I don't know what to do and if I don't pass my quiz it'll bring my whole grade down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know that speed of light=(frequency)(wavelength) All those waves in the choices all have different wavelength. Frequency is in hertz Speed of light is 3.00 x 10^8 You were given frequency and speed of light. Now find the wavelength. If the wavelength has the same exponent in scientific notation to one of the waves, then it is that one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you do is read in my explanation to know the number for speed of light. If you cant do that, then I dont know. It is going to take a while. (A huge waste of time)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah, I see 3.00 x 10^8=\[3.00\times10^8\] So what are the number for speed of light and frequency?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Speed of light=(frequency)(wavelength) Speed of light is in the unit m/s Wavelength is in the unit m Frequency is in hertz or hz Which of those are given in the problem. (meaning they have a number)
