Wavelength <> Frequency
by Les Weston on 10/24/05 at 10:29:42
I'm surprised I couldn't find this requested before, but how about a conversion between wavelength and frequency for electromagnetic radiation (light, radio, etc.).
The formulas are [b]wavelength = C / frequency[/b] and [b]frequency = C / wavelength[/b] , where C is the speed of light (as in [b]E=mC[sup]2[/sup][/b]), which is 299,792,458 meters per second in a vacuum (according to http://tinyurl.com/984ft ).
I suppose to be pernikity, the speed of light in the atmosphere will be slightly slower, but who cares? I don't think it will affect the length of my DAB aerial significantly!

I have this on my to-do list. I am just quite far behind on my work and haven't gotten to it as of yet.
I do have simplified formulas worked out already, just not up on the site.
