Problem 1 SolutionUsing the equation:
where:
v = frequency (in units of "per second", or s^{1} Solving for frequency, we have the equation:
To ensure that our units match, we must convert the wavelength from nanometers to meters: 1.25 x 10^{3} nm * (1 x 10^{9} meters / 1 nm) = 1.25 x 10^{6} m Now, it's just a simple "plug and chug": v = 3.00 x 10^{8} m s^{1} / 1.25 x 10^{6} m = 2.40 x 10^{14} s^{1} or 2.40 x 10^{14} s^{1} hertz (Hz)
