    Hi all,
    can the angular frequency of a electric waves be used to determine the wavelength using the following;
    ω=2πf
    rearranging for the frequency, and using the following;

    E=hf=(hc/λ)

    or can this formula no be used as it is dealing with photons?

    yep, that's fine. all you're really doing is using the two equations: ##\omega = 2 \pi f## and ##c=\lambda f##.
