i'm not a physicist neither but i want to become an electrical engineer :-)

wavelength -> m
frequency -> 1/s
wavenumber -> 1/m

speed of light (m/s) = frequency (1/s) * wavelength (m)

=> frequency (1/s) = speed of light (m/s) / wavelength (m)

but this is quite offtopic now. you can ask by private mail for further
questions ;-).
