Light of wavelength 0.544 µm (in air) enters the water in a swimming pool. The speed of light in water is 0.700 times the speed in air. What is the wavelength of the light in water?

2. Relevant equations

mu = m / L

v = sqrt (F/mu)

speed of air 386 m/s

3. The attempt at a solution

0.700 x 386 = 270.2

270.2 = sqrt (F / 0.544) = 39716.40

F = 39716.40

idk what to do now
