The frequency of the emitted light is $\nu\approx5.09\times10^{14}s^{-1}$
We would calculate the frequency of the emitted light according to the formula $$\nu=\frac{c}{\lambda}$$ $\nu$: frequency of light $c$: speed of light in a vacuum $(c\approx2.998\times10^8m/s)$ $\lambda$: wavelength of light The wavelength of the emitted light is $\lambda=589nm=5.89\times10^{-7}m$ Therefore, the frequency of the emitted light is $$\nu=\frac{c}{\lambda}=\frac{2.998\times10^8m/s}{5.89\times10^{-7}m}\approx5.09\times10^{14}s^{-1}$$
