Homework Help: Find the length of the waves

  1. Jan 27, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Radio waves travel at the speed of light waves
    (3.00 *10^8 m/s). If your radio is tuned to
    a station broadcasting at 1250 kHz, what is
    the length of the waves arriving at the radio

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i can find the wavelength but i don't know how to find the length

    Pretty sure they're looking for the wavelength. What's your Relevant equation?

    'length of the waves' = 'wavelength'. This is an example of circumlocution in English.
