Unformatted text preview: We know that sound travels at 34400 cm/s so that is what my calculations should have led to. For the fork with a frequency of 384, I found that it had a wave velocity of 34714 cm/s meaning that it was 0.91 percent off of the correct value. The fork with a frequency of 480 gave a velocity of 34301 cm/s from calculations meaning that it was off the correct amount by 0.29 percent....
