The velocity of electromagnetic radiation in free space (air) is the speed of light. It is c = 3 x 10⁸ m/s. The broadcasting frequency is f = 101.7 mhz = 101.7 x 10⁹ hz. Because velocity = frequency * wavelength, the wavelength of the radiation is λ = c/f = (3x10⁸ m/s)/(101.7x10⁹ 1/s) = 2.95 x 10⁻³ m = 2.95 mm Answer: 2.95 mm
An fm radio station broadcasts electromagnetic radiation at a frequency of 101.7 mhz. the wavelength of this radiation is ________ m.
