Electromagnetic Radiation Light propagates in space as a wave. In vacuum, the speed of light is 3.00 x 10 8 m/s Speed of light in vacuum is given the symbol “c” Light waves have amplitude, frequency, and wavelength. λ = distance peak to peak ν = frequency c = ν ⋅ λ and ν = c/ λ

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
