The distance in terms of number of wavelength from the radio transmitter has to be calculated if the station is broadcasting at 1150 k H z . Concept introduction: The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength. ν = c λ where, c = speed of light ν = frequency λ = wavelength The units Hz = s − 1 The number of wavelengths = distance wavelength

Solutions

Chapter 6, Problem 4PS

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The distance in terms of number of wavelength from the radio transmitter has to be calculated if the station is broadcasting at 1150kHz.

Concept introduction:

  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

  • The units Hz=s1
  • Thenumberofwavelengths=distancewavelength

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The distance in terms of number of wavelength from the radio transmitter has to be calculated if the station is broadcasting at 98.1MHz.

Concept introduction:

  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

  • The units Hz=s1
  • Thenumberofwavelengths=distancewavelength
