You are viewing a New Year's Day fireworks display at a distance of 1500 m. It is 4.0°C. How long does it take the sound of the fireworks exploding to reach you?

• physics -

time=distance/velocitysound

so figure the velocity of sound at 4C

• physics -

i got 375 seconds but that was wrong. what do divide 1500 by 4?
