# 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 shot.

- 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? - 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 - 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, - The shooter

The shooter heard the bullet's impact on the target one second after the shot. The bullet was moving at an average speed of 500 m/s. Calculate with the speed of sound of 340 m/s. Determine the distance of the target.

- Lightning 69734

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? - Abyss

The stone fell into the abyss: 11 seconds after we heard it hit bottom. How deep is the abyss (neglecting air resistance)? (gravitational acceleration g = 9.81 m/s² and the speed of sound in air v = 336 m/s) - A boy 2

A boy dropped a coin from the top of the dry well and heard a sound 6 seconds later. Considering this as a free-fall object, how deep is the well? The speed of sound in air is approximately 343 m/s.
