Beat frequency

  1. Jan 3, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What would be the beat frequency if radio waves of wavelenght 3.141m and 3.135 are mixed?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I need frequency of wave1 and wave2, because Fb=|f1-f2|
    But i dont have nothing but wavelength...
    Any hints?

    Can you work out the frequency?

    HINT: At what speed do radio waves travel?

    Another hint: Radio waves are electromagnetic waves. At what speed do all EM waves travel at?
