For electromagnetic radiation, frequency x wavelength equals the speed of liqht, c, in a vacuum, which is 3.0 x 108 cm/s.

Formula: c = frequency x wavelength

Your given information is the frequency of 2.5 x 108/s.

Your known information is c, which is 3.0 x 108 m/s.

To solve for wavelength, do the following:

wavelength = c/frequency = (3.0 x 108 m/s)/(2.5 x 108/s) = 12 m

### How are wavelenghth and frequency of electromagnetic radiation related?

For any wave, (wavelength) times (frequency) = (speed of propagation).For electromagnetic waves, (wavelength) times (frequency) = (speed of 'light')

### Relationship between frequency velocity and wavelength?

Wavelength = (speed) divided by (frequency) Frequency = (speed) divided by (wavelength) Speed = (frequency) times (wavelength)

### What is the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation if its frequency is 3.2 times 10 to the -2 Hz?

The wavelength of electromagnetic radiation can be calculated using the formula: wavelength = speed of light / frequency. Given that the speed of light is approximately 3.00 x 10^8 m/s, the wavelength for a frequency of 3.2 x 10^-2 Hz would be approximately 9.38 x 10^9 meters.

### What is the frequency of radiation that has a wavelength of 3.33 times 10 to the -8 meters?

The frequency of radiation can be calculated using the formula: frequency = speed of light / wavelength. Plugging in the values gives: frequency = 3.00 x 10^8 m/s / 3.33 x 10^-8 m = 9.01 x 10^15 Hz.

### If wavelength is multiplied by frequency what is the answer?

Wavelength times frequency gives the speed of the wave.

### How does a waves speed relate to its wavelength and frequency?

The product of (wavelength) times (frequency) is the speed.

### What are 3 forms of Electromagnetic Radiation with a wavelength less than visible light?

The wavelength of electromagnetic radiation is a measure of the frequency; multiply the frequency times the wavelength, and the answer is ALWAYS the "Speed of Light", which we abbreviate as "c". All of these are different "bands" of electromagnetic energy. Radio is the longest wavelength and lowest frequency. "Low Frequency" is the lowest, followed by "high frequency", "very high frequency" or VHF, "ultra-high frequency" or UHF. Beyond that are microwaves, and then heat, then "infrared", and then visible light. Higher frequency (and shorter wavelengths) than light are "ultra-violet", then X-rays, and then "gamma rays".

### What is relation between wave speed and frecuency?

Speed = (frequency) times (wavelength) Frequency = (speed) divided by (wavelength) Wavelength = (speed) divided by (frequency)

### What is energy that can travel through empty space?

Electromagnetic radiation can travel through "empty" space. Depending on the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation, we call it "radio" or "microwaves" or "heat" or "light" or "UV" or "X-rays" or even "cosmic rays" - it's all different frequencies of EM radiation. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency; in fact, the frequency times the wavelength is the constant "c", the speed of light.

### What formula relates speed wavelength and frequency-?

The speed is the product of wavelength and frequency.

### How could you find the wavelength of light if you knew it's speed and frequency?

Wavelength times frequency is the speed. To know the wavelength, you have to divide the speed by the frequency of the light.

### Are frequency and wavelength related?

Yes, velocity equals the product of frequency times wavelength, v=fw.
