  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "sound speed variables" to get these possible sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_sound

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
