Seriously, if I didn't need physics I probably wouldn't take it.I've don the work for this one problem, but then I'm not sure if it's the right formula for what I need. Here's what I have so far(the parts in bold are the work I've done)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

10. An electromagnetic radiation has a frequency of 5.00 x 10^14Hz.

b) Calculate its wavelength in water.

Given: wavelength = 0.6 x 10^-6m or 600nm

n = 1.33 for waterRequired: wavelength(med)

Analysis: c=(f)(wavelength{vac}) and c=(n)(wavelength{med})

therefore wavelength(vac) = (n)(wavelength{med}) andwavelength(med) = wavelength(vac)/nSolution: wavelength(med) = (0.6 x 10^-6m)/1.33

= 4.51 x 10^-7 or 451 nmNow I get looking at this and I'm not sure if that's exactly how I go about doing this or if this is what I'm supposed to do for finding the index of refraction (which comes later) Please help, my brain is fried.
