A piano emits frequencies that range from a
low of about 28 Hz to a high of about 4200
Hz.
Find the maximum wavelength in air attained by this instrument when the speed of
sound in air is 336 m/s.
Answer in units of m

  • Physics -

    max wavelength is at low freq

    28*wavelength=336
    solve for wavelenght in meters.
