**Step 2 :**

While observing the waves, we can see that phase changes with respect to time. The difference between any two points in the same phase is called as **Wavelength**. Wavelength is denoted by **$\lambda$**.

**Wavelength Calculator** or **Frequency Wavelength Calculator** will help us to calculate the wavelength, when frequency(f) is given and also used to calculate frequency(f), when wavelength($\lambda$) is given. The default value of the speed of the light in air/vacuum is given by 3 $\times$ 10^{8} m/s. **Wavelength Frequency Calculator** will use the following formula:

**The Formula for Wavelength is given by the equation:**

$\lambda$ = Wavelength in m

$v$ = Speed of the wave in m/s

$f$ = frequency of the wave in Hz or s^{-1}

$\lambda$ = $\frac{v}{f}$ or $f$ = $\frac{v}{\lambda}$

where$\lambda$ = Wavelength in m

$v$ = Speed of the wave in m/s

$f$ = frequency of the wave in Hz or s

Wavelength Formula:

Wavelength($\lambda$) = $\frac{Velocity(v)}{Frequency(f)}$

Frequency(F) = $\frac{Velocity(v)}{Wavelength(\lambda)}$

where

$\lambda$ = Wavelength in m

$v$ = Speed of the wave in m/s

$f$ = frequency of the wave in Hz or s^{-1}

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.

The light wave moves with the frequency 50Hz, then calculate its wavelength?

**Step 1 :**Given that:

Frequency of the wave(f) = 50Hz

We know that Velocity of the light = 3 $\times$ 10

^{8}

Wavelength($\lambda$) = ?

**Step 2 :**We know that:

Wavelength($\lambda$) = $\frac{Velocity(v)}{Frequency(f)}$

Wavelength($\lambda$) = $\frac{3 \times 10^{8}}{50}$

Wavelength($\lambda$) = 6000000 m

**Answer :**Wavelength($\lambda$) = 6000000 m

If the light has a wevelength of 500m, then calculate its frequency?

**Step 1 :**Given that:

Frequency of the wave(f) = ?

We know that Velocity of the light = 3 $\times$ 10

^{8}

Wavelength($\lambda$) = 500 m

**Step 2 :**We know that:

Frequency(F) = $\frac{Velocity(v)}{Wavelength(\lambda)}$

Frequency(F) = $\frac{3 \times 10^{8}}{500}$

Frequency(F) = 600000 Hz

**Answer :**Frequency(F) = 600000 Hz
