Velocity of sound through wood at zero degrees Celsius

is $3252.51$ miles per hour

#### Explanation:

There are $1760$ yards in a mile and each yard is equa to $0.9144$ meters and hence we have

$1760 \times 0.9144 = 1609.344$ meters in a mile.

Further, we have $3600$ seconds in an hour.

Now, in $1$ second, sound travels through wood at zero degrees Celsius for $1454$ meters.

Hence in $3600$ second it will travel $1454 \times 3600$ meters

or $\frac{1454 \times 3600}{1609.344} = 3252.5054$ miles

Hence desired speed is $3252.51$ miles per hour.
