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?

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

Angel, same equation, solve for wavelength.

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