The frequency of a sine wave is determined by coil in the generator and turns the coil makes. The frequency is determined by charge that completes one cycle leaving its original location and returning. Period of em wave is determined by charged particle completing one cycle of oscillation Two more question only What is the deference between period and frequency? If all flowing current have electromagnetic wave does it mean dc also have electromagnetic waves, how? If similar questions have been answered plz refer.

What is the deference between period and frequency? Period T is the time taken to complete one oscillation. Frequency F is the number of oscillations per unit time , usually second. F = 1/T Suppose you are at a bus stop and the bus plying a particular route arrives every 15 minutes i.e. 1/4 hour. The time interval between buses is 15 min or 1/4 hr so that is the period . In one hour , there will be 1/(1/4) = 4 buses which is the frequency of that bus route.

In dc current there is only a steady flow of charge so no e.m wave is generated. However, a magnetic field is generated. With ac however it is a different story as e.m. waves are generated. You might have heard an annoying low frequency hum when bad audio amplifiers are used, especially in public address systems.This is nothing but the e.m. waves (radiation) due to the 50/60 Hz present in the 230/110 V ac supply being picked up and amplified.
