the frequency of middle C on a piano is 261.6hz. What is the wavelength of sound as it travels @room air and in water?

  • physics -

    λ= v/f
    air 20°C : v1 =343 m/s
    water : v2= 1500 m/s

    Determine the frequency of the note F4, 5 Seminotes above middle c (C4=261.6Hz) So would it be C4 = 261.6Hz x 1.05946^5 The fact they say semi notes is throwing me off, so I'm not sure if it's right.
