    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    a sound having a frequency of 264 Hz travels through air at 25.0 C. what is the wavelength of the sound.

    2. Relevant equations
    V = frequency x wavelength

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i cant even attempt it because i don't know how temperature affects sound.

    From wikipedia
    in air the speed of sound is given by
    [tex] c_{\mathrm{air}} = 331{.}3 + (0{.}6 \cdot T) \ \mathrm{m \cdot s^{-1}} [/tex]

    wher T is the temperature of the air in celcius
