What is the wavelength of a sound wave with a frequency of 440 Hz if the speed of sound in air is 340 m/s?
The sound wave has a wavelength of 0.773m.
To solve this problem we have to use the wave equation that is given below:
We know the frequency and the velocity, both of which have good units. All we have to do is rearrange the equation and solve for
Let's plug in our given values and see what we get!
