The distance between a loudspeaker and the left ear of a listener is 2.19 m. (a) Calculate the time required for sound to travel this distance taking the speed of sound to be 343 m/s. (b) Assuming that the sound frequency is 525 Hz, how many wavelengths of sound are contained in this distance?

    Am I to believe that you are unable to do any problem that concerns a wave? Please you try first, then ask for help.

    Damon, I am so lost, could you at least give me a hint so I can show you some work?

  • Physics -

    t = s/v =2.19/343 = 6.38•10⁻³s
    λ =v/f = 343/525 = 0.653 m
    N = s/ λ

    Thank you Elena .... you are a much better helper than Damon
