Answer

a. 10 GHz. b. $3.3 \times 10^{-5} s$.

Work Step by Step

a. $$Frequency = \frac{speed}{wavelength} = \frac{3 \times 10^{8} m/s}{0.03 m} = 1.0 \times 10^{10} Hz = 10 GHz$$ b. If c denotes the speed of light, then $d = (2)(5000m) = ct$. Solve for t = d/c. $$\frac{10000 m }{300,000,000 m/s} = 3.3 \times 10^{-5} s $$
