PhysicsOverflow is a next-generation academic platform for physicists and astronomers, including a community peer review system and a postgraduate-level discussion forum analogous to MathOverflow.

Welcome to PhysicsOverflow! PhysicsOverflow is an open platform for community peer review and graduate-level Physics discussion.

Please help promote PhysicsOverflow ads elsewhere if you like it.


PO is now at the Physics Department of Bielefeld University!

  Standing waves and light speed

+ 0 like - 3 dislike

If light speed is equal to frequency times full wavelength where C = f λ then light speed must be twice that on half wavelengths from standing waves, assuming photons are standing packets or quanta.

Does this logic make sense ? 

Closed as per community consensus as the post is not graduate-level

This is not a graduate-level question and would therefore be a better fit on PhysicsForums.
