: Calculate the wavelength of a radio wave with a frequency of 93.1 x 106 s-1.
: Equation: [lambda] = c/[nu]
: [lambda]= (3.00 x 108 m/s)/ [nu]
: [lambda]= (3.00 x 108 m/s)/ (9.31 x 107 cycles/s)
: [lambda]= (3.00/ 9.31) x 101 m/cycle
: [lambda]= 3.222341568 m/cycle
: [lambda]= 3.22 m/cycle
: Did I do this right?
Looks good! However,I would leave the cycles out of the units. The wavelength is just m and your frequency is just s-1
