The
wavelength
of a
sound
frequency
and the time it takes to travel a given
distance
is calculated based on the provided frequency and
journey
distance.

The
speed
of
sound
is not equal in all media. The standard speed of sound in air is mach 1, but this is
pressure
and temperature-dependant. In
water
it is approx. 1500 m/s, but again this varies at different depth, salinity, and temperature.
