a bowling ball traveling with constant speed hits the pins at the end of a bowling lane 10 m long. The bowler hears the sound of the ball hitting the pins 3 sec after the ball is released from his hands. What is the speed of the ball? (Speed of sound is 340 m/s)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone give me a hint? I know it involves d=v*t, but I don't know how I can use the speed of sound and the time when the ball hits the pins besides finding the distance the ball traveled...

thanks in advance
