Well you use an equation for that...

#### Explanation:

Frequency of a wave is given by the equations:

• #1.f=1/T#

where:

• #f#is the frequency of the wave in hertz
• #T#is the period of the wave in seconds
• #2.f=v/lambda#

where:

• #f#is the frequency of the wave in hertz
• #v#is the velocity of the wave in meters per second
• #lambda#is the wavelength of the wave in meters

For electromagnetic waves, they all travel at the speed of light, and so their velocity becomes#c#. Thus, we make a third equation, which is:

• Question #f2711
• Question #6b062
