Electromagnetic radiation and wave motion

In class my teacher explained how a pulsar in the crab nebula, NP 0532 emits both radio and optical pulses. A radio pulse is observed at 196.5 Mhz then she said calculate the corresponding wavelength, the energy of the photon, and the momentum? I didn't know how to do this.
