    I am trying to work out how long a 2.4 Ghz signal will take to travel.. say 1M. I will then take the actual distance and times by the metre. I also want to work it out for the 5 Ghz transmitter if any one can help.... it's doing my head in !!!
    If you could help out with the formula that would be wonderful, Cheers all

    How far would the 2.4 GHz signal go in one second?

    Yes, Basically that is it. Also the 5Ghz in one second

    Ok....the last time I measured one....it was real close to 300000000 meters in one second.

    Seven and one half times around the equator in one second.

    If you divide a second by 1000, then divide it again by 1000, and once more by 1000........you get a nano second.

    Any radio or EM wave in space or air.......will travel about 11-12 inches in one nano second.

    About 3 nano seconds for one meter.
