A sound wave travels at a speed of . If its wavelength is , what is the frequency of the wave? Will it be audible?
Step 1: Given data
The speed of the sound wave is
The wavelength of sound is
Step 2: Frequency
Step 3: Finding the frequency
As we know, frequency is .
We know human ears are able to hear sound waves of a range of frequencies . So, is not audible to the human ear.
Therefore, the frequency of the wave is and it is not audible.
