Ok. At a depth of 1000m, the ocean temp is 4 degrees celsius and the speed of sound is 1480m/s. From lab experiments, for every 4m/s increase in velocity, the temp increases by 1 degrees.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When the distance is 8000km, the smallest time change that can be detected is 1s, what is the smallest temp change that can be measured?

I am so frustrated w/ this question.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
