# What frequency sound has a 0.10-m wavelength when the speed of sound is 340 m/s?

## Question:

What frequency sound has a 0.10-m wavelength when the speed of sound is 340 m/s?

## Velocity, Frequency, and Wavelength:

The frequency *f* (measured in Hertz) is the count of cycles per second. The frequency is related to the speed *v* and the wavelength {eq}\lambda
{/eq} by the following equation: {eq}v = f\lambda
{/eq}. By using a change of subject of the formula, we can calculate any of the three quantities provided we have any of the two.
