Explanation:

a ) AM radio band (540–1600 kHz)

frequency = 540 kHz = 540 x 10³ Hz

wave length = velocity of light / frequency

= 3 x 10⁸ / 540 x 10³

= 555.55 m

frequency = 1600 kHz = 1600 x 10³ Hz

wave length = velocity of light / frequency

= 3 x 10⁸ / 1600 x 10³

= 187.5  m

maximum wavelength  =   555.55 m

minimum wavelength =  187.5 m

b )

AM radio band (88 – 108 MHz)

frequency = 88 MHz = 88 x 10⁶ Hz

wave length = velocity of light / frequency

= 3 x 10⁸ / 88 x 10⁶

= 3.41 m

frequency = 108 MHz = 108 x 10⁶ Hz

wave length = velocity of light / frequency

= 3 x 10⁸ / 108 x 10⁶

= 2.78  m

maximum wavelength  =   3.41 m

minimum wavelength =  2.78 m
