A bat emits ultrasonic sound of frequency 1000 kHz in air. If the sound meets a water surface, what is the wavelength of (a) the reflected sound, (b) the transmitted sound?Speed of sound in air is 340 m s-1 and in water 1486 m s-1


Expert Answer

Step 1



Frequecy of the ulyrasonic sound (f)=1000Hz=106Hz

Speed of sound in the air (Va)340m/s
