**Frequency (F)**

Frequency is how many times a wave passes a certain point in one second. It is measured in hertz (Hz), or cycles per second.

**Wavelength (λ)**

What is wavelength? Wavelength is the distance between two consecutive wave crests or the distance from one peak to the next. Wavelength is usually expressed in meters.

**How to Convert Frequency to Wavelength**

**λ = C/F**

C = Speed of light – 299,792,458 m/s

To convert the frequency to wavelength, divide the frequency by the speed of light (C). For example, a radio station’s frequency is 108 MHz and the speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s. Therefore, to convert the frequency to wavelength, divide 108 MHz by 299,792,458 m/s. The result is 2.77585609 meters.
