A tuning fork produces a sound with a frequency of 277 Hz and a wavelength in air of
1.21 m.
What value does this give for the speed of
sound in air?
Answer in units of m/s

  • Physics -

    freq*wavelength=speedsound

  • Physics -

    What would be the wavelength of the wave
    produced by this tuning fork in water in which
    sound travels at 1500 m/s?

  • Physics -

    Angel, same equation, solve for wavelength.

  • Physics -

    Oh I'm sorry. Really stressed and can't think straight.
