Enter the speed of light and wavelength into the calculator to determine the frequency in Hertz. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Mm To Hz Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the frequency in Hertz from the wavelength in millimeters.

f = c / λ


  • f is the frequency in Hertz (Hz)
  • c is the speed of light (299,792,458 meters per second)
  • λ is the wavelength in millimeters (mm)

To calculate the frequency in Hertz, divide the speed of light by the wavelength in millimeters. Note that the speed of light is a constant value, and the wavelength must be converted from millimeters to meters (1mm = 0.001m) before performing the calculation.

What is a Mm To Hz?

Mm to Hz refers to the conversion from millimeters (mm), a unit of length, to Hertz (Hz), a unit of frequency. This conversion is typically used in the context of electromagnetic waves, such as light or radio waves, where the wavelength of the wave (measured in millimeters) is inversely proportional to its frequency (measured in Hertz). Therefore, a wave with a shorter wavelength will have a higher frequency, and vice versa.

How to Calculate Mm To Hz?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mm To Hz using the formula: f = c / λ

  1. First, determine the wavelength in millimeters (λ).
  2. Next, determine the speed of light (c) in meters per second.
  3. Next, use the formula f = c / λ to calculate the frequency in Hertz (Hz).
  4. Finally, calculate the Mm To Hz.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
