Is this statement correct:

When part of sound travelled through water, wavelength and speed of sound would change because since the particles are closer together in water than in air, the speed of sound would increase which in turn would decrease the wavelength according to the following formula:
wavelength = v/f.

    Sorry but "cut and paste" will not work here. You will need to ty pe that formula out.

    A bat emits a sound whose frequency is 83.2 kHz. The speed of sound in air at 20.0 oC is 343 m/s. However, the air temperature is 40.5 oC, so the speed of sound is not 343 m/s. Assume that air behaves like an ideal gas, and find the …
