On a hot summer day (30 degrees Celcius), a pesky little mosquito produced its warning sound near your ear. The sound is produced by the beating of its wings at a rate of about 600 wing beats per second. What is the frequency in Hertz of the sound wave? What is the wavelength of the wave?
speed of sound at 30 ºC v= 348,9 m/s
λ = v/f= 348.9/600= 0.58 m.
