On a hot summer day (30 degrees Celsius), a pesky little mosquito produced its warning sound near your ear. The sound is produced by the beating of its wings at a rate of about 600 wings beats per second. What is the frequency in Hertz of the sound wave? What is the wavelenght of the wave?

• science -

frequency = 600 Hertz (beats per second)

Wavelength
= (speed of sound)/(frequency)
= (340m/s)/600 (s^-1) = 0.57 m
