Hello, I'm new here and I'm not sure wether this is the correct forum or not, ohwell here it goes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm wondering how to calculate the speed of sound by using the formula:

Lamba = v * T

The frequency was 480 Hz and the distance was 33.34 cm.

This was done in a tube with sand so you could distinguish the soundwaves in the sand thus measuring the distance of one wave length.

Any help would be appreciated!
