The frequency is calculated by dividing the speed of light in the wave length. The use of the normal constant of 3x10^8 m/s divided by 530 nm can be calculated. You need to convert nm to m so that is 5.3x10^-7. Divide the constant of the light for that and you get 5.66 x10^14 hz, where hz is the function 1/s.
