The sound travels at a speed of 1km in 3 seconds. If the thunder is heard 12 seconds after the lightning, what distance is the storm? - 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 - Dependence 2927

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. - Lightning strike

In a thunderstorm, the formula M=t/5.3 gives the approximate distance, M, in miles, from a lightning strike if it takes t second to hear the thunder after seeing the lightning. If you are 5.4 miles away from the lightning flash, how long will it take the

- Train speed

The troop fired two guns from the same place at 10 minutes and 30 seconds intervals, but a person on a train approaching the place heard a second shot 10 minutes after the first. The speed of the train (in km/hr), supposing that sound travels at 340 m/s, - Observer 83616

Sound travels at a speed of 330 meters per second. The observer heard the bang 14 seconds after the flash. At what distance did the flash occur from the observer? - A molecule

A molecule travels with a speed of 8100 centimeters per minute (cm/min). How far would the molecule travel in centimeters in 3.19 seconds?
