# Microwaves travel at the speed of light, #3.00 times 10^8# #m##/##s#. When the frequency of microwaves is #9.00 times 10^9# #Hz#, what is their wavelength?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

We're given a wave's speed and its frequency, and we're asked to calculate its wavelength.

The wavelength-frequency relationship of a periodic wave is represented by the equation

where

*lambda*) is the wavelength of the wave, in

Since we're trying to find the wavelength, let's rearrange this equation to solve for wavelength,

Plugging in our known variables, we have
