What do echo and reverbation have in common?

Homework Equations


We can hear sounds with a difference of 0.1 seconds. Speed of sound 340 m/S. the distance the sound travels is 34 m. the distance from the wall is 17m.

The Attempt at a Solution


They are the reflection of sound waves, they are formed when sound waves meet a hard surface, they cause a repetition of the sound. The waves keep having the same frequency (the source doesn't change); They have the same speed and length as they had before the reflection, because the environment doesn't change. Is there anything else?

What has to be different in the environment to cause an echo versus a reverberation? Why?

Now, what is the common factor?
