3. Electromagnetic radiation with a wave- length of 600 nm travels faster than that with a wavelength of 400 nm. 4. Electromagnetic radiation with a wave- length of 400 nm has a frequency that is lower than that with a wavelength of 600 nm. 5. Electromagnetic radiation with a wave- length of 400 nm travels faster than that with a wavelength of 600 nm. Explanation: v = f λ , so λ = 1 f . Higher wavelengths cor- respond to lower frequencies, and vice versa . 022 (part 1 of 1) 10 points What is the wavelength of a radio station transmitting at 99.1 MHz? 1. 303 nm 2. 330 nm 3. 0.330 m 4. 0.00303 m 5. 3.03 m correct Explanation: μ = 99 . 1 MHz = 9 . 91 × 10 7 Hz c = ν λ λ = c ν = 3 × 10
