Click and drag the sliders to modify the frequency or the wavelength.
- To see the characteristics of a transverse Electromagnetic wave.
- To introduce the Speed of Light to Wavelength and Frequency Relationship: The speed of the electromagnetic wave (speed of light) is equal to the wavelength times the frequency.
