Textbook Problem

The range of human hearing extends from approximately 20 Hz to 20 000 Hz. Find the wavelengths of these extremes at a temperature of 27°C.

To determine
The range of wavelength of audible sounds at 27°C .

Explanation

Given Info: Temperature is 27°C .

Formula for speed of sound in air,

v=331m/s1+TC273

  • TC is the temperature in Celsius.

Substitute 27°C for TC in the above expression to get v.

v=331m/s1+27273=343m/s

Formula to calculate the wavelength of sound is,

λ1=vf1

  • λ1 is the wavelength of the sound.
  • f1 is the frequency.

Substitute  343m/s for v , 20 Hz for f1 and to calculate λ1
