watch the units and you can see what to multiply or divide

343 m/s * .012s = 4.116 m

A bat emits a sound whose frequency is 83.6 kHz. The speed of sound in air at 20.0 oC is 343 m/s. However, the air temperature is 36.0 oC, so the speed of sound is not 343 m/s. Assume that air behaves like an ideal gas, and find the …
