Which statement expresses the relationship between frequency and wavelength of all types of electromagnetic waves? They are directly proportional to each other They do not influence each other they are inversely proportional to each other They are equal to eachother

    \[v = frequency; \lambda = wavelength, c =speed of light\] speed of light = frequency*wavelength \[c = \nu \lambda \]

    What does that equation tell us?

    So it's not C? And you have to use frequency and wave length to find the speed of light?

    no.. before we get to the question you need to understand how these things are related

    Can you tell me which it is real quick and then explain? I'm going to get kicked off my assignment and my grade will go lower

    \[\nu = \frac{ c }{ \lambda }\] this tells us that if the wavelength gets smaller the frequency gets bigger, and when the wavelength bigger the frequency gets smaller. what type of relationship is this?

    so directly proportional? :)

    no.. they would not be directly proportional remember one goes up the other goes down can you see this from the formula?

    I have one minute to answer before I'm kicked off.... And no not from the formula, would they be indirectly proportional then?

    they are inversely proportional
