Just a simple equation would do the job well.

#### Explanation:

The wavelength of a wave is given by:

where:

#v# is the velocity of the wave in meters per second

#f# is the frequency of the wave in hertz

In the case of electromagnetic radiation, the energy is spread out at the speed of light,

Now, you can apply this equation to some
