wavelenght w, in meters per cycle, of a musical note is given by w=r/f, where r is the speed of sound and f is the frequency in cycles per second. The speed of sound in the air is 344m/sec. What is the wavelenght of a note whose frequency in air is 33 cycles per second? Round to the nearest tenth of a meter per cycle.

Hello :)

Use this equation to solve:

w=r/f

r = 334 m/sec

f = 33 cycles/sec

Plug in r and f into the equation:

w = (334 m/sec) / (33 cycles/sec)

w = 10.1 meters/cycle

Hope this helps!  Let me know if you have any questions :)
