Frequency  ‹―›  Wavelength Calculator

Here is a simple JavaScript routing that converts between frequency and wavelength. Wavelength and frequency are related by the following formula:

Equation Frequency Units Wavelength Units
c = λ * ν * √εr, where  c = speed of light
            λ = wavelength
                ν = frequency
            εr = relative permittivity
G = GHz
M = MHz
k = kHz
H = Hz
k = kilometer
m = meter
cm = centimeter
mm = mm
nmi = nautical mile
mi = statute mile
yd = yard
ft = foot
in = inch
mil = 1000ths of an inch

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
