Homework Help: The speed of sound in relation to temperature

  1. Jul 19, 2010 #1
    What is the temp. of dry air if the speed of sound is 339 m/s?
    I have been using this formula: v = 331 x (temp./273 + 1)
    I've tried for at least 2 hours and cannot get the answer. Please help me.

    Thanks anyways.
