A sound wave has a wavelength of 5.5 m in its travel through air at S.T.P with speed 330m/s. What is the wavelength of sound in the medium? where its speed is 1324 m/s.
Answer & Explanation
Sound's frequency stays the same across mediums. To find it's frequency, we can use inputting knowns:
Solve for f:
Knowing this, we can find the wavelength in the other medium:
or in decimal form.
