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

A magnetic-field technique for stabilizing a He-Ne laser to 2 parts in 10^10 has been patented. At 632.8 nm, what would be the coherence length of a laser with such frquency stability.

2. Relevant equations

Coherence time =1/delta frequency

coherence length = c/delta frquency

3. The attempt at a solution

dont know what 10^10 stands for and how to solve this

help would be much appreciated.
