Wavelength to Frequency Calculator
Top
Wavelength to frequency calculator is an online tool to convert wavelength of a wave to corresponding frequency. The relation between wavelength and frequency is given as


$\lambda$=$\frac{\nu }{f}$

Where $\lambda$ is the wavelength
           $\nu$ is the velocity of the light
            f is the frequency

  1. The wavelength of light wave is 450nm. Convert this in terms of frequency?


    Step 1 :  

    The given parameter $\lambda$=450nm


    We know that, the velocity of light, $\nu$=3×108m/s



    Step 2 :  

    The convertion relation is,


    $\lambda$=$\frac{\nu }{f}$


    450x10-9=$\frac{3×10^{8} }{f}$

    f=$\frac{3×10^{8} }{450x10^{-9}}$


     


    f=6.666×1014Hz



    Answer  :  

    Frequency corresponding to 450nm is 6.666×1014Hz



  2. The wavelength of light wave is 700nm. Convert this in terms of frequency?


    Step 1 :  

    The given parameter $\lambda$=700nm


    We know that, the velocity of light, $\nu$=3×108m/s



    Step 2 :  

    The convertion relation is,


    $\lambda$=$\frac{\nu }{f}$


    700x10-9=$\frac{3×10^8 }{f}$


    f=$\frac{3×10^8 }{700x10^-9}$


    f=4.2857×1014Hz



    Answer  :  

    Frequency corresponding to 700nm is 4.2857×1014Hz
