Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[8973{\buildrel _{\circ} \over {\mathrm{A}}} \]is that what the wavelength is? Do you know the definition of the \({\buildrel _{\circ} \over {\mathrm{A}}}\) unit?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[1\text{ } {\buildrel _{\circ} \over {\mathrm{A}}} = 10^{10} \text{ m}\] Frequency and wavelength for electromagnetic waves are related by \[c = f \lambda\] where \(c\) is the speed of light in vacuum, \(2.99792458*10^8\text{ m/s}\) \(f\) is frequency and \(\lambda\) is wavelength in meters

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the wavelength would be : 8973*10^10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, wavelength is \(8973*10^{10}\text{m}\) that gives you \[c = f \lambda\]\[\lambda = \frac{c}{f} = \frac{2.99792458*10^8\text{ m/s}}{8973*10^{10}\text{m}} =\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.000003341 would that be 3.3*10^14 Hz?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would carry 4 decimal places to match the 4 you had for the wavelength, but yes, \[3.341*10^{14} \text{ Hz}\]
