Homework Help: Do I need to convert wavelength to meters

  1. Jan 17, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The sound emitted by bats has a wavelength of 3.5mm. What is the sound's frequency in air? Assume that the bat is flying through air with a temperature of 30 degrees C.

    2. Relevant equations

    V=331.4 + 0.6*Temp.C

    3. The attempt at a solution

    V= 331.4 + 0.6(30)



    The only thing I'm not sure about is did I need to change the 3.5mm to .0035m?
