Sound travels in the air at a speed of about 330 m/s. Make a table of the dependence between the time (after one second), and the sound's distance travels during this time. During a storm, you can easily find out how far you are from it.

- Thunder and lightning
There was a glimpse of the sky, and we heard thunder in 4.5 seconds. The light spreads at 300,000 kilometers per second, so we can assume the flash instantly without delay. However, the sound's speed is much lower in the air, one-third of a kilometer per

- Sound speed in Earth
Through the surface layers of the Earth, sound propagates 13 times faster than through air. The charge exploded 1.7 km from the measuring station during the geological survey. How long does it take between the vibration of the soil at the measuring point
So far, a storm has traveled 35 miles in 1/2 hour in a direction straight to the observer. If it is 5:00 PM, and the storm is 105 miles away from you, at what time will it reach you? Explain how you solved the problem.
- Speed of sound
The average speed of sound is 330 meters per second. Estimate how long it will take to hear the church bell 1 km away. Calculate the distance from what would hear sound after 10 seconds.
- Propagation 81568
A cannon fired at a distance of 2720 m from the observer. The sound of the shot was heard by the observer 8 seconds after the flash. Calculate the speed of sound propagation in the air if we assume that the observer saw the flash at the same time as the s
