# A radio can tune in to any station in the 7.5 MHz to 12 MHz band. What is the corresponding wavelength band?

Given: Minimum frequency v1 = 7.5 MHz

In Hz, v1 = 7.5 × 106 Hz

Maximum frequency v2 = 12 MHz

In Hz, v2 = 12 ×106 Hz

Speed of light c = 3 × 108 m/s

Now wavelength for frequency v1 = 7.5 MHz is given by the following relation:

λ 1 = c/v1

λ1 = 40 m

The wavelength for frequency v2 = 12 MHz is given by the following relation:

λ2 = c/v2

λ 2 = 25m

the range is 20 m to 40 m.
