An airplane produces a sound wave with frequency of 5 KHz and wavelength 30 m. In how much time would the sound wave cover the distance of 4 Km?

Expert Answer:

Frequency, ν = 5 KHz = 5000 Hz
Wavelength, λ = 30 cm = 0.3 m
Speed, v = ν λ = 0 .3 m x 5000 Hz = 1500 m/s
Time = distance/ speed = 4000/1500 = 2.6 seconds
