1)The velocity of sound in air is 332 m/s. If the unit of length is km and the unit of time is hour, what is the value of velocity?

m/s

bobpursley said he would be happy to check my work but I don't know what they're looking for I thought they are looking for the unit which is what I gave. what numbers do I use?

  3. It seems to me that it is looking for the value of speed in km/hr. Separate subject: How did you get 332m/s to equal 1195m/s ?

  4. I have that same exact question I need to answer, but I'm not sure how to answer it because it's not in my text book. :( Help?
