## Question:

A radio station uses broadcasting at 600 kHz. What is the wavelength of the signals emitted by the station (speed of light {eq}c=3\times 10^8 {/eq} m per s)?

## Frequency and Wavelength:

Remind that the frequency and wavelength of an electromagnetic wave is directly related by an equation

{eq}f = \dfrac{c}{\lambda} {/eq}

where

- {eq}c = 3.0 \times 10^8 \ \frac{m}{s} {/eq} is the speed of light,

- {eq}f {/eq} is the frequency,

- {eq}\lambda {/eq} is the wavelength.
