Problem 45492. SatCom #1: Wavelength of an electomagnetic wave

Satellite and Space Engineering - Problem #1

This is the first of a series of problems looking at topics in satellite and space communications and systems engineering.

An easy one to start. You are given the frequency of an electromagnetic (RF) wave (in Hz). Calculate the wavelength (in m).

You should take the speed of light to be 299,792,458 m/s.

The input frequency must be a positive, real number.

Hint: See https://pediaa.com/relationship-between-wavelength-and-frequency/

Example: If the frequency is 500 MHz, wavelength is 0.599584916 m.

Some future problems in this series will build on work done in previous problems, so if you get a working solution I suggest you hang onto the code!
