## What is the wavelength in meters of an electromagnetic wave with a frequency of 1 Hz?

The wavelength of an electromagnetic wave that has a frequency of 1Hz is 3*10^8m.

**How do you calculate the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave?**

How to calculate wavelength

- Determine the frequency of the wave. For example, f = 10 MHz .
- Choose the velocity of the wave.
- Substitute these values into the wavelength equation λ = v/f .
- Calculate the result.
- You can also use this tool as a frequency calculator.

### What is the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave that has a frequency of 3 kHz?

Radio Waves. Radio waves are EM (Electromagnetic)waves that have wavelengths between 1 millimeter and 100 kilometers (or 300 GHz and 3 kHz in frequency).

**What is wavelength of radio wave with a frequency of 1.5 x10 Hz?**

The wavelength is 20μm which is longer than that of red light.

## Is wavelength in meters or nanometers?

Wavelength is usually measured in meters (m). Frequency is the number of cycles of a wave to pass some point in a second. The units of frequency are thus cycles per second, or Hertz (Hz).

**What is the wavelength of radio waves in meters?**

Regions of the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Wavelength (m) | Energy (J) | |
---|---|---|

Radio | > 1 x 10-1 | < 2 x 10-24 |

Microwave | 1 x 10-3 – 1 x 10-1 | 2 x 10-24- 2 x 10-22 |

Infrared | 7 x 10-7 – 1 x 10-3 | 2 x 10-22 – 3 x 10-19 |

Optical | 4 x 10-7 – 7 x 10-7 | 3 x 10-19 – 5 x 10-19 |

### What is the wavelength in meters of ultraviolet light with ν 5.2 1015 S − 1?

What is the wavelength in meters of ultraviolet light with v = 5.5 * 10^15 s-1? The UV light with a frequency equal to 5.5 x 1015 s-1 will have a wavelength of 5.45×10-8 m.

**Is wavelength measured in meters?**

## What does wavelength mean in the electromagnetic spectrum?

Wavelength (m) = Wave velocity (m/s) / Frequency (Hz) Wavelength represents the distance between two consecutive frequency wave peaks and is usually used to describe the electromagnetic spectrum.

**Which is the unit of measurement for wavelength?**

Wavelength (m) = Wave velocity (m/s) / Frequency (Hz) Wavelength represents the distance between two consecutive frequency wave peaks and is usually used to describe the electromagnetic spectrum. The measurement units for it available in the form are microns; mm; cm; m; km; inches and feet.

Let’s take for instance the case of a wave with a frequency of 56 Hz going through a material at a speed of 168 m/s. The wavelength result is 3 m. Wave velocity (m/s) = Frequency (Hz) x Wavelength (m)

**What does the frequency of a wave represent?**

Frequency represents the number of occurrences of an event in a certain period of time. In this case we are talking about peaks of the wave. The unit from the formula is Hz but you can also input KHz; Mhz and GHz and the calculator will do the transformations. Wave velocity represents the speed of the wave.
