    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?
