The formula [ f = \frac{c}{\lambda} ] can be used to find the frequency of the x-rays, where ( f ) is the frequency, ( c ) is the speed of light (approximately ( 3.00 \times 10^8 ) meters per second), and ( \lambda ) is the wavelength of the x-rays (5.0 × 10^-9 meters). [ f = \frac{3.00 \times 10^8 , m/s}{5.0 \times 10^{-9} , m} ] [ f = 6.00 \times 10^{16} , Hz ] Consequently, the frequency of these x-rays is ( 6.00 \times 10^{16} ) Hertz.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
