Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We want to know how far the sound has travelled, because then we can figure out the speed. Speed = (Distance)/(Time) If we find the distance, we can then find the speed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do we double the 180 because its an echo ? because it doesn't give us how far it has travelled.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right, it travels from the student to the wall, 180 m, the sound bounces off the wall and then travels back, another 180 m. hence the sound travels 360 m. Given that, what is the speed of sound as observed by the student?
