    I want to know the speed of sound at sea level. :confused:

    I also want to know the exact speed of light in kilometres. :confused:

    I don't have the numbers at my finger tips. If I needed them as bad as you seem to I would probably use a web search. Any reason you cannot search the web for yourself?

    Give a man a fish and he eats once, teach a man to fish, he eats his whole life.... Go fishing.

    A speed in kilometers?!? In km/s it is: 299792,458 km/s exactly.
