Speed of sound

  1. Jul 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    compared to the speed of 100Hz sound the speed of 200Hz sound through air is?

    2. Relevant equations
    i thought i needed the temp of air to fiigure this question out, but the temp is not given? is this question as simple as 200/100 or no??

    3. The attempt at a solution

    speed of sound in air = v=(331+0.606Tc )m/s?????

    Speed of sound is independent of the frequency. Otherwise it would be impossible to listen to an orchestra...
