Question

Calculate the wavelength, frequency and wave number of a light wave whose period is 2.0 × 10–10s.

Solution

Frequency (ν) of light  = `1/"Period"`

`= 1/(2.0 xx 10^(-10)s) = 5.0 xx 10^9 s^(-1)`

Wavelength (λ) of light  = `c/v`

Where,

c = velocity of light in vacuum = 3×108 m/s

Substituting the value in the given expression of λ:

`lambda = (3xx10^8)/(5.0xx10^9) = 6.0 xx 10^(-2)m`

Wave number (`barv`) of light =` 1/lambda = 1/(6.0xx10^(-2)) = 1.66xx 10^(-1) = 16.66 m`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
