    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    if the time interval between sending and receiving is 1/3s and the velocity of the sound wave in water is 1500m/s,find the wave lenght of the sound wave

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    frequency=1/(1/3*1/2)=6s^-1
    wavelenght=(1500ms^-1)/6s^-1
    =250m
