Problem 5P

A mosquito flaps its wings 600 vibrations per second, which produces the annoying 600-Hz buzz. Given that the speed of sound is 340 m/s, how far does the sound travel between wing beats? In other words, find the wavelength of the mosquito’s sound.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5P The frequency of the mosquito is, = 600 hertz This beating of wings create sound waves which travel at the speed of sound in air which is, V = 330 m/s. We know the relation between frequency, wavelength and velocity of a wave which...
