Answer to Question #18701 in Mechanics | Relativity for P Diddy

Question #18701
Suppose that your favorite AM radio station broadcasts at a frequency of 1600 kHz. What is the wavelength in meters of the radiation from the station?
Expert's answer
Wavelengthof a radio wave is calculated by the the distance the radio waves travels in
one second (the speed of light), 300,000,000 meters, divided by the frequency.In other words, since 1600KHz=1.6 MHz, there will be1.6 million 'waves' distributed over 300,000,000 meters. So,300,000,000/1,600,000 = 187.5 meters for one 'wave'
