A tuning fork vibrates producing sound at a frequency of 512 Hz. The speed of sound in air is v = 343.00 m/s if the air is at a temperature of 20.00 C. What is the wavelength of the sound?

The wave speed v is related to the wavelength λ and frequency f by:
v = λ f...(1)
Given data:
f (frequency of the sound produced)=512Hz
v (speed of sound in air at 20 C) = 343 m / s
Required Data:
We are asked to determine the wavelength of the sound.
Solution:
The wavelength of the sound is found by solving Equation (1) for λ :
λ = v f
Substitute numerical values from given data:
λ = 343 m / s 512 H z
=0.67m
Result:
λ = 0.67 m
