You are watching a baseball game on a day when the air temperature is 20 oC. You see the bat hit the ball. You hear the sound 0.16 seconds later. How far are you from home plate?


*The speed of sound at 20°C is 344m/s

check_circleExpert Solution

Consider the speed of sound be v, the distance of the home plate be s, and the time taken by the sound be t.


Write the expre...

(344 m/s)(0.16 s)
= 55.04 m
