Sound = distance/time (/ means divided by)

The speed of sound is 343.2 meters a second, now you can do the math.

My math may be a bit off but if you take in account for the variables...speed of light in a vacuum, etc...It should be 874000 times the speed of sound

You can calculate the speed of sound through air based on air temperature with the following equation: speed in meters per second = 331.5 + (temp in celcius*0.60)

A math equation uses variables and numbers, while a chemical equation uses compounds and mole ratios.

Speed = Frequency * Wave length.

Equation for the speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.

Equation for the speed of sound in air is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × T. T = Temperature. Speed of sound in air at 20°C is c ≈ 331 + 0.6 × 20 = 343 m/s.

a math equation

Yes. The equation relating temperature (in degrees Celcius) to the speed of sound is v=331+0.60T. This means that when the temperature is 0C (the same as 32F), the speed of sound will be 331m/s.

In the classic equation E = mc^2, c stands for the speed of light.

Sound travels faster as temperature increases, so there is no limit. There is an equation to determine the speed of sound at a given temperature.

I could not figure out the math equation. The new data did not fit the existing equation. An equation can be a math formula or standard method.
