(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A soldier hears the sound of the firing of a distant cannon 6.00 seconds after seeing the flash. If the temperature is 20 degrees Celsius, how far is the soldier from the flash?

2. D = R * T

3. Since the speed of sound at 0 degrees Celsius is 330 m/s, the speed of sound at 20 degrees Celsius is 342 m/s.

With that being said, how do you find the distance? D = 342 * 6 ?
