(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The speed of light is 3 x [tex]10^8[/tex] m/s. Blue light has a wavelength of about 450nm (nm = 10^-9 m). Calculate the frequency of this light

2. Relevant equations

v=f[tex]\lambda[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

3 x [tex]10^8[/tex] = f x 450

f = [tex]\frac{3 times 10^8}{450}[/tex]
