The relationship, which includes the speed of light, is: f= c/'A or 'A= c/f Where f = frequency in Hertz A. = wavelength in meters c =the speed of light whi ch is 300,000,000 or 3 * 108 m/s If either wavelength or frequency is known, the unknown value can be calculated. 0000003 meters Figure 2-6 Comparison chart Don ' t let all the zero's or the very large or small numbers confuse or upset you. Scientists deal with large numbers all the time. When scientists deal with large or small numbers they handle all the zeros by using a technique called scientific notation.
