If you're asking how to play the note Bb, you play it by pushing the first valve.

If you're asking about what pitch it is, Bb on a typical trumpet is the same as Ab on a piano.

A Bb trumpet is in the key of Bb, a C trumpet is in the key of C. When you play a Bb on a Bb trumpet, it sounds a C (concert pitch). When you play a Bb on a C trumpet, it sounds a Bb. C trumpets are in the key of C or concert pitch

They are in different keys, a Bb trumpet is in the key of Bb while a Flute is in the key of C. so if you wanted them to sound the same have the trumpet play a Bb and the flute a C

Bb is played with first valve if you are using a standard Bb Trumpet.

A trumpet is pitched in Bb. A flute is pitched in C. If a flute is playing a C, and a Trumpet is playing a C as well, the flute is playing a concert C, while the trumpet is playing a concert Bb. They are the same note on paper, but different concert pitches.

The trumpet can come in many keys, but Bb is the most common.

If, by "bb" you mean b-flat, that is a trumpet that plays in the key of B-flat, as opposed to a C trumpet or E-flat trumpet.

There is a link below to a sheet of music with all the notes in the written range of a Bb trumpet. It includes note names and fingerings. Note for non-Bb trumpets: The fingerings for the written notes will stay the same, however the pitches (and names of the notes) will be different.

a pocket trumpet weighs the exact same as a Bb trumpet, the only difference between a pocket trumpet and a Bb trumpet is that the tubing on the pocket trumpet is much more compact

Most commonly the trumpet plays in Bb, C and Eb. The C trumpet is used widely in American orchestras alongside the ubiquitous Bb trumpet and has a much brighter tone.

A Bb and a C trumpet are two different instruments, A Bb trumpet is set in the key of Bb while the C trumpet is set in the key of C (or concert) so seeing as they are two different instruments i would say they are equally as good.

Short answer: 140-147cm for a Bb trumpet According to a 2003 article (link below) by the International Trumpet Guild, the expected length of tubing in a Bb trumpet is 147cm. However, multiple independent measurements of actual Bb trumpets found an actual length of about 140cm.
