for this problem will simply use the formula. That speed off sound is the baling times, the frequency. So the wavelength is simply the speed times the frequency. The speed is 345 seconds. Frequency is 1200 hoods. Remember that hurt is inwards off a second. So until the second on our units will be meters, which is exactly what we need, because it's prevalent on this transfer to the zero point to a 75 meters, which is which is about for 28.75 centimeters.
