speed of sound
varies depending on the temperature, pressure, and density of the medium through which the sound waves travel. For dry air at sea level at 68° F, the speed of sound is 767 miles per hour, or 1235 km/h
Speed is how far something travels in a known time speed = distance / time. In
everyday life, speed is generally measured in either miles per hour (or kilometres
