A charged particle oscillates about its mean equilibrium position with a frequency of 10 to the power 9 Hz. What is the frequency of the electromagnetic waves produced by the oscillator ?

Dear student 

The frequency of an electromagnetic wave produced by the oscillator is the same as that of a charged particle oscillating about its mean position i.e., 109 Hz.

 Hope this clarifies your doubt.
