Speed of Sound in Air

Physics
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

  1. The accepted value for the speed of sound can be found from the formula:

speed=331 m/s + .6 m/s times each degree above 0°C

How does the above value for the speed of sound compare with the average speed you obtained from the experiment? (Give the average % difference and a concluding statement. Show all work.)

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!


speed of sound at normal 25 degrees is 320m/s

experiment at 25 degrees=331+0.6*25=316m/s

difference=4/320*100=1.25%

 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
