How many feet do sound waves travel per second?
At sea level in air sound travels approximately 1125 ft/s, however it changes depending on the material in which it travels. For instance, it travels faster in water.

The sound that is perceptible by humans is in the range of 20 to20,000 Hz, or cycles per second. The average sound wave within thisrange would be approximately 10,010.5 Hz.
Approximately (it depends on temperature and pressure and humidity) 1129 feet per sec or about one mile per 5 seconds.
C=Î»v. 340 m/s= 20 1/sec (Î»). v= 17 m= ~56 ft
1100 feet Update: You're just about right. Technically, though, it's a little over: 761 miles = 4018080 feet 1 hour = 3600 seconds ~1116 constitutes supersonic flight… at sea level
The speed of sound is 760 mph there is a simple maths equation to find out what it is in fps. I have done this and have figured out that: 760 mph (The sound barrier) is 1114.…66666666
340.29 meters per second at sea level.
Notice: The speed of sound changes with temperature and a little bit with humidity â but not with air pressure (atmospheric pressure). The words "sound pressure at se…a level" are incorrect and misleading. The temperature indication, however, is absolutely necessary.. The speed of sound at 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) is 343 meters per second. That is 1126.547 feet per second.
The speed of sound at sea level is 340.29 meters per second.
343 meters per second at sea level.
1,100 feet per second = 66,000 feet per minute
Wavelength = (speed) / (frequency) = (340) / (20,000) = 0.017 meter = 1.7 centimeter
distance = rate * time 1000 meters = 331 meters/second * x seconds x = 1000 / 331 So about 3 seconds.
At 60 mph you are traveling at 88 feet per second.
