Hi,

I'm having troubles finding a solution for a problem. Can anybody help me out ? I have no idea where to start so any informations is greatly appreciated. Here's the problem:

A bat uses sonar at 50kHz to detect objects. The bat is flying in air at 30 degrees Celcius. Directly in front of the bat is a very rapid change of air temperature at 40m distance where the temperature drops to 8 degrees celcius. If the echo return is 1.34s, determine the distance to the bug.

Thanks alot,
- alex
