## Homework Statement

A tuning fork vibrating at 512 hertz falls from rest and accelerates at 9.81 m/s^2. How far below the point of release is the tuning fork when waves of frequency 485 Hz reach the release point? take the speed of sound in air to be 340 m/s. (don't forget it takes the sound extra time to reach the release point)

## Homework Equations

v = f x wavelength

v = d/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

i don't know how to approach this problem, i was thinking of using kinematics but i dont know what v2 is and i wouldnt using the frequencies given
